    This is an amazing haul for the Nats...5 top of the line prospect, Susana being the least known, but a big time riser. Great deal for both teams, IMO.

    It's going to happen with or without him. If he has indeed rejected the deal it only means he'll be going to another team either through trade or DFA.

    This might be interesting...adding a third team:

    the Gallo option makes a lot of sense - and Hosmer wouldn't nix that (I don't think)

    But the Yanks would -- Gallo is a FA at the end of the year while Hosmer is owed $39m over the next three years and would be a PH

    I can't find Hosmer's list of 10 teams that he can block trades to. Does anyone have a resource that lists those facts?

    But yeah, Gallo makes the most sense.
