Default Span to Nationals

Per mlbtraderumors.com.

Didn't see it posted yet. Sorry if I missed it.
Glad to see him not only out of our division, but out of the AL altogether.

Career #s of Span vs. the White Sox:

(61 games)
.324avg
.391obp
.439slg
79hits
14doubles
4triples
23rbis
37runs

Pretty solid numbers against us. Frankly, it seemed a lot worse because he always seemed to get the big hit late in the game that killed us. I'm glad he is out of our division and the AL. Solid pickup for the Nats.

Normally the Twins don't trade for these kind of pitchers, but Meyer is a potential ace. This could work for both sides.

As a White Sox and Nationals fan, I am extremely happy this evening.

So was Boof Bonser, who was back in the Giants system last year, without the burden of potential. But when the Twins traded for Bonser, they picked up a couple of other pitchers in the deal.
