The Nationals didn’t sign 9th overall draft pick Aaron Crow. They are the second worst run team in the MLB. (The Astros take the #1 spot easily) They still have only a mediocre farm system, and all we were hearing in this past offseason is how they had a lot of money to burn and how they were going after Torrie Hunter and Aaron Rowand. And now, with such a small payroll, they won’t give 4MM to a top pitching prospect. The Nats are stupid, and Jim Bowden is the worst GM in the game. He trades Rauch for a mediocre 2B prospect, then signs Christian Guzman to a 2 year extension, the Nats don’t have a chance at competing next year, and probably not in ’10. That was wasting the money they could’ve used on Crow.
