Expectations weren’t all that lofty when Mike Rizzo took over D.C. baseball operations back in 2009. It’s safe to say he has exceeded them. His first roster matched the ’08 outfit with a brutal 59-win effort. That ramped to 69-93 and then 80-81 in the ensuing two seasons. The Nats broke out in 2012 and haven’t had a losing campaign since. There has been quite a lot of drama over the years, but the D.C. organization finally broke through a postseason curse with a stunning run to a title in 2019.

Rizzo’s history on the trade market includes some duds, but also quite a few slam dunks. He’s still not under contract beyond the 2020 season, though the expectation remains that he’ll end up working out another extension to remain at the helm.

Boswell said yesterday that the Gio trade was Rizzo's finest hour. No qualms with that. But the trade netting Trea Turner and Joe Ross deal was a steal, too. And if Turner's career continues to flourish that could end up being Rizzo's best one imo.

You would expect that Rizzo "won" the early trades because the Nats were long term building and happy to trade talent for prospects. The more recent trades were tougher because the Nats are in win now mode so we've been on the other side, giving up guys like Giolito and Pivetta with big potential in order to try to win rings.

Excellent, on the whole, although there are a couple of stinkers. But every GM has a couple of those.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Acquired RHP Logan Kensing from the Marlins for RHP Kyle Gunderson --- nothing for nothing, Gunderson never made the majors and Kensing had a -.9 WAR in less than a season with the Nats.

Acquired 1B/OF Mike Morse from the Mariners for OF Ryan Langerhans --- Huge win for Rizzo, 5.6 WAR for Morse in 3+ years with the Nats, he was one of the biggest stars in the 2012 playoff run and one of the most popular players on the team. Morse even added a lot more value when he was traded after 2012. Langerhans had a .2 WAR under the contract at the time of the trade and not much better after he was re-signed.

Acquired LHP Sean Burnett and OF Nyjer Morgan from the Pirates for OF Lastings Milledge and RHP Joel Hanrahan --- The one was mostly a wash, a small loss for Rizzo, 6.2 WAR gained, 6.5 lost.

Burnett was the big pick-up, he gave the Nats 4.6 WAR with tons of game action over 3+ years, ending with a not so great 2012 playoffs.
Morgan was one of the most interesting stories in Nats history, he was over-valued by the fan base in 2009, he was so popular that the team had a bobblehead for him in 2010. But that second season he clashed with Werth and made a couple of the most legendary bone-head plays in team history. He ended up with a not so horrible for the price 1.6 WAR but left town as one of the least popular players to wear the curly W.

Hanrahan balked in the winning run in one of his last appearances in DC, he was terrible here. In Pittsburgh he had a 5.5 WAR in 3+ seasons.
Milledge got unfairly grouped with Elijah Dukes while he was in DC. Dukes was a thug, Milledge was just a loudmouth. In spring training 2009 I sat in front of some groupies who called him "Long Lastings". For the Pirates he played a little better than he did here, but still a largely wasted talent. 1 WAR in just over one season.

Acquired LHP Aaron Johnson from the Marlins for 1B Nick Johnson --- Nothing for almost nothing. Nick Johnson had an .890 OPS in a quarter season for the Marlins, then was granted free agency. Aaron Johnson was picked up off of waivers before making to the majors with the Nats.

Acquired RHPs Ryan Mattheus and Robinson Fabian from the Rockies for LHP Joe Beimel --- Kind of a win/win for both teams. Beimel ended up appearing in three playoff games for the Rockies that season, not a huge contributor, but he was acquired for the post-season and he did OK. Fabian never made the majors. Mattheus had a not so special 1.3 WAR in 3+ seasons, but did manage to pick up the win in the Nats first ever playoff game in 2012.
