Tampa Bay sends RP Brad Boxberger to Washington, where he takes over the closer role.

The Nationals send LH reliever Enny Romero to the Rays, where he will gives Tampa another lefty in the bullpen besides Xavier Cedeno.

Don't see the rays doing this, they had Romero the last two years, and he hasn't pitched well for them. Don't see them trading boxberger for him.

So the Nationals are going to send Enny Romero, who they just acquired from Tampa Bay, back to Tampa Bay?

The Rays got rid of Romero because they needed his roster spot. So I don't see them taking him back and giving up a better reliever as well.

The rays just DFA'd Romero then (I may be wrong) sold him to WAS.

Um so a guy who they sent to Washington as a DFA a couple weeks ago for a better and more established reliever?

My point is that Washington is loaded to win this season, but the bullpen looks to be an issue. Boxberger is on the short list of guys who could go to D. C., close games, and settle the pen.

The trade itself has flaws; the reasoning is sound.

Thanks, guys.

The reasoning sucks, the rays don't want Romero.

Sure, it makes great sense for Washington, but good trades make sense for both teams, and there's no reason for the rays to do this. If a good trade makes sense for one team and not the other, I have a lot of pirates trades I would love to post.

The Nationals should trade Bryce Harper to the Dodgers for cash.

The Dodgers need an OF.

The reasoning is sound, but the trade has flaws.

Exposfan the reasoning isn't sound, for it too be sound it needs to make sense for both teams.

I was mocking his defense of his post.

Not only do I think this could be a good trade -- but it's really funny because when you mentioned Xavier Cedeno something clicked. He used to be a National!
