Washington Nationals Begin Fire Sale
AP - August 21, 2018
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Washington Nationals have traded second baseman Daniel Murphy to the Chicago Cubs and first baseman Matt Adams to the St. Louis Cardinals, essentially throwing in the towel on a disappointing season.
The third-place Nationals announced the moves Tuesday before beginning a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Despite a roster that boasts such stars as Max Scherzer and Bryce Harper, Washington began the day with a losing record of 62-63, 7+ games behind the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves.
No news on Bryce Harper yet, but he will probably be gone too.
