Washington Nationals 2007

Imitation is the best form of flattery.  The Washington Nationals have decided to punt 2007 in hopes that their focus on an even more distant future by stockpiling draft picks will result in a Tigers-esque path to the World Series.

If so, then expect Nats GM Jim Bowden, a frenetic trader, to work hard to deal everyone except 3B Ryan Zimmerman.

I can see 1B Nick Johnson being dealt despite signing a three-year contract extensionlast March, and the Pirates are in the market for a lefty-hitting 1B with power.
