Cristian Guzman To Wait On Contract Talks’s Bill Ladson has some info on impending free agent shortstop Cristian Guzman.  Apparently there will be no extension talks with the Nationals until after the season, a decision made by both sides.  Ladson’s source indicates that Guzman might be willing to cut the Nats a break since he was injured for much of his current four-year deal.  That break might translate to a two-year contract.

We’ll see if Guzman still feels the same after the season.  In my Free Agent Stock Watch post on Guzman, I mentioned him as a cheaper alternative to Rafael Furcal.  Furcal is looking questionable, and Guzman should be popular.  Will he really forego a third year out of gratitude to the Nationals?
