Many experts around the baseball world have lauded the Nationals and Athletics trade, highlighted by Gio Gonzalez coming to Washington, as good for both sides. But in trading away yet another star, the Oakland Athletics haven't exactly pleased everyone.
Nats trade for Gio, Mark Zuckerman reports.
In acquiring lefty Gio Gonzalez Thursday, the Nationals signal they won't delay and are ready to contend in 2012.
The Nationals have acquired left-hander Gio Gonzalez from the A's for prospects Brad Peacock, Derek Norris, A.J. Cole and Tommy Milone, a source confirmed to CSNwashington.com's Mark Zuckerman.
The Nationals have been engaged in some serious trade talks with the A's over Gio Gonzalez. But the price to acquire the young left-hander is steep and will probably cost Washington at least three top prospects.
