Alexis Rios for Nick Johnson?

Gammons rumors are normally unreliable, but with Bowden running the show, who knows what will happen? It would be sad if my favorite National never plays a game in D.C. Anyway, Gammons says a Rios for Johnson swap is being discussed.

I don't know how this trade makes sense in terms of need. Rios is a good prospect and showed potential as a 23 year old in the Majors last year, but where is he going to play? He is not a CF and the corner spots already have depth. He would be a potential upgrade over Sledge if Wilkerson plays CF or 1B, but then the Nationals would have a big hole at 1B or CF (wherever Wilkerson didn't play). And if this trade means re-signing Endy Chavez, then nothing good can come of this. I think Rios represents a toolsy, but still good prospect. And I always have doubts about Nick's health, but I just don't think this trade would make the team better.
