An Actual HEADLINE I’m Proud To Report: -AP source: Zimmerman, Nationals add $100M, 6 years-

(Some Of The Article) By HOWARD FENDRICH, AP Sports Writer

–Ever since he became the Washington Nationals’ very first draft pick, Ryan Zimmerman wanted to stay with the club for the long haul.

Now he’ll get that wish.

The Nationals took what they hope is another step toward consistent contention by locking up their third baseman—and the guy many still call the face of the franchise—through 2019, adding six years to Zimmerman’s existing contract in a deal announced Sunday.

The deal includes a full no-trade clause.

The extra six seasons are worth $100 million, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no financial terms were revealed publicly.

“It’s nice that it’s done,” Zimmerman said at a news conference at the club’s spring training stadium in Viera, Fla. “It’s where I want to be. It’s where I’ve always wanted to be.” …–

  1. Nationals made two great acquisitions for the starting rotation in Edwin Jackson and Gio Gonzalez. I look for Jayson Werth and Ian Desmond to post better stats in 2012. Adam LaRoche at first base will add more power with Mike Morse moving to left field according to Nationals depth chart at mlb.com.

    Marlins made a lot of news during the offseason with their acquistions, but the Nationals may have made better acquisitions, including picking up Brad Lidge who can be lights out if he is healthy.

    Nationals may be the surprise team of the NL East in 2012.
