Dmitri Young learned of teammate Ron Belliard’s two-year contract extension, and now is talking about staying in Washington himself. He’s cautious to add that there’s a ceiling on what kind of discount he will provide.
What would Young want? It would have to be two years, already a questionable idea for Washington. I’m guessing maybe he’d want $8-10MM? Just doesn’t make sense for the Nats, no matter how good Young thinks he is in the clubhouse. He’s not a reliable player; he’s a DH nobody wanted who happens to be on a hot streak.
Even if it’s just a B-level prospect, it’s hard to see why Jim Bowden would not trade Young in the next week.
