Could be. I’m hearing a lot of chatter on the rumor channels. With the Rays picking up Asdrubal Cabrera today (Dec. 30), that would indicate they could decide to part with Zobrist and his much fatter contract. Zobrist is the kind of quality second baseman the Nats have wanted. He has WAR numbers that are up with league leaders (though I have not yet seen the exact numbers myself). Zobrist can play several positions well in both the IF and OF, but second is possibly his best place to play!
I’m crossing my fingers that Mike Rizzo is going for broke on this!
