Nationals trade Clippard for Escobar

The Washington Nationals have traded All Star reliever Tyler Clippard to the Oakland A’s in exchange for middle infielder Yunel Escobar.

This trade makes sense...

Washington Nationals: should they trade Tyler Clippard?

It is clear that the Washington Nationals have a surplus of strong arms at the back end of their bullpen. This may not be the case for long, however, as rumors have been circulating that the team is looking to move one of the trio of arms. Before the signing of Rafael Soriano, Drew Storen was Nationals’ closer, saving 43 games in 2011. After Soriano was added to the roster, Storen...
