Nats-Reds trade

Nats get: Drew Storen, Scott Feldman

Reds get: Drew Ward, Tyler Watson

Why Nats: this gives them another bullpen upgrade which they are looking for and they get a guy who can step into the open spot that Ross left in the rotation, plus Storen is familiar with the organization.

Why Reds: this gives them 2 more prospects to continue their rebuild. They get a 3rd base prospect with high upside in Ward, and they get a good pitching prospect in Watson as well.

What do you guys think?

Do the NATS need to add more? Or is this an overpay?

With Ross out and the bullpen trashed, the Nats could use more.

I know they could use more than this, but this is a way to get decent upgrades for a great price. They seem to be unwilling to give up their top prospects so the only other guy I can think of that wouldn't cost much that is being shopped is Robertson. The NATS won't be trading for guys like Britton because I would likely cost them a top prospect. Plus they only need a guy who can step in for this season and maybe even for part of next season while Ross is out. Storen is haveing a great year (compared to the last few years) and would decently help the NATS struggling bullpen, and Feldman has been above average. He is the "ACE" for the Reds so if you get him and take some pressure off of him and slide him down to 4 or 5 (depending on where Roark is) and give him some offense, he should only get better.

I'm answering your question; you asked if the Nats need more. I said yes.

I don't think it's an overpay. The Nats might have to give up more for those two, but not much more.
