Nationals Looking For Cleanup Hitter

According to’s Bill Ladson, the Nationals are looking for a cleanup hitter.  Their targets: Adam Dunn, Prince Fielder, Matt Holliday, and Mark Teixeira.

The Nats probably do not have the depth to pull off a trade for Fielder or Holliday.  Teixeira will command a contract in the $150MM range.  Of the four, Dunn makes the most sense.  He can be had for less than $100MM, and GM Jim Bowden has a history with him.
