The story was that the Nationals were going to take this week to try to get Adam Dunn signed to a contract extension, and if that didn’t work, they’d trade him. Their definition of “try to get Adam Dunn signed to a contract extension” probably needs work, though, because according to Ken Rosenthal, the Nats have made zero progress on that front, and haven’t even made Dunn a single offer.
You’d assume this means that the Nats are more intent on trading Dunn than they have heretofore let on, though scuttlebutt about that has remained at a minimum. The same old stuff about the White Sox being interested. One interesting note that the Rays inquired last week, but that the Nats demanded Matt Garza in return, which is kind of nuts.
You’d still think that the Nats can do better than the couple of draft picks they’d get if they held on to Dunn and let him walk this offseason, but as of now, it seems like the Nats have been kinda paralyzed into inaction.
