Nationals going hard at Cliff Lee?

The Nationals will offer Lee a seven-year deal, tweets Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News.


Comment From Mike Mike : ] Keith, can you comment on Buster's tweet about the Nats throwing "HUGE" dollars at Lee? What is huge? 8yrs/200 mill? As a DC resident this has gotten very exciting. Tuesday December 7, 2010 10:37 Mike



You'd have to ask Buster for specific numbers but it sounds like seven years would be the top offer right now. Look for a number of additional "Washington had to overpay" stories if that happens.

Well, that was fun while it lasted. Earlier today, there was some buzz that the Washington Nationals would make a "huge" move to sign top free-agent pitcher Cliff Lee. There were reports that they would be wiling to give Lee a seven-year contract. But as of right now, it looks like those reports were unfounded.


Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post talked to two Nationals sources who vehemently shot down the reports that Lee would get a seven-year contract.

Are the Nationals getting TARP money from congress?


In a roundabout way. Washington is where the money is at nowadays. Lots of cash flowing for things like luxury boxes to be picked up by lobbyists, law firms and contractors.



Didn't you hear that the Republicans and Tea Partiers are cutting back on everything in Washington. That's how they got elected.
