Riggleman doesn't think major trades are coming
The Nationals have been on a roll under interim manager Jim Riggleman, winning six out of their last eight games entering Wednesday’s action.
Asked how much he would hate to see some of the players dealt before Friday’s trade deadline after a good run, Riggleman said, “Personally, I don’t think we are going to lose them, I really don’t. We have seen some trades made in the last few days that would probably lower the chances of our guys getting traded. … I don’t anticipate losing our guys.”
Nationals players such as Adam Dunn, Nick Johnson and Josh Willingham have been mentioned in trade talks. They are only going to be dealt if the Nationals get top prospects for them.
