Watch Doug Fister do the splits on a stretch at first

Washington Nationals rumors: are they done?

With the winter meetings in full swing, the Washington Nationals have made a few major additions to attempt to fill glaring holes from last season. They appear to be finished in the starting pitching market, as the Doug Fister trade led to a surplus of starting pitchers on the roster.
