Adam Dunn is exactly what the Braves have been needing this season: A big bat in the middle of the order who can hit a lot of Home Runs.

What has Frank Wren been offering the Nats?

I don't know.

What I do know is that the Nationals are set on young pitchers for the future. But they don't have any veteran pitching.

You know what that means.

Javy Vasquez might be headed to Washington.

Here is my best guess at what they are offering the Nationals for Dunn:

Nationals get: Javier Vasquez, Cody Johnson, Gregor Blanco/Cash Considerations.

Braves get: Adam Dunn, possibly a middle grade minor leaguer.

Is that the deal that Frank Wren is offering?

Again I don't know.

A big problem in this is that the Braves have competition.

Boston, Kansas City, and the Mets are also teams trying to get the big fella. If this deal falls through for the Braves, this will give them the big bat they need in the middle of that lineup.

I'll be crossing my fingers, that's for sure.
