Nationals looking for shortstop

According to a baseball source, the Nationals are looking for a starting shortstop. They feel that Cristian Guzman, who is on the trade block, has lost a few steps with his glove.

The source said the Nationals are alarmed that Guzman is having a difficult time getting ground balls to his left.

The Nationals want young starting pitching in return for Guzman, who has one year left on his contract.

The team doesn’t have to acquire a shortstop — at least for the rest of the season. It can go with Alberto  Gonzalez, who is hitting .326 with a home run and 12 RBIs.

As a huge Guy fan I hate that they are thinking of giving up on him, but at the same time want Christian to actually have his hits count on a contending team……

As a huge Guzy fan I hate that they are giving up on him just for his D, he is hitting the lights out! However I do want Christian to succeed, so if he gets traded to a contender, all the better…..

If we can get something of value for Guz, then I am for a trade. We need to see if Alberto Gonzalez can be everyday…
