Nationals GM Mike Rizzo addressed the Washington media following their loss to San Francisco this afternoon. Let's take a look at some highlights courtesy of MLB.com's Bill Ladson:
- The team's performance over the next few weeks will not affect what the club does at the Trade Deadline. Rizzo added: "We are trying to win as many ball games as we can in 2010 and do it the right way and build for the future."
- Rizzo went as far as to say that it would take an "extraordinary offer" to pry away Adam Dunn in a trade. However, he would not rule out the possibility of dealing the slugger, nor did he nix the idea of trading Dunn and pursuing him in free agency after the season.
- Despite publicly stating his desire to sign a new deal with the Nats, the club still hasn't approached Josh Willingham about an extension, Ladson tweets.
