As the trade deadline approached, all Loyal Shark Fans waited with baited breath to hear if the Shark would be traded. It looked like there was a very real possibility that he would be going to the Twins. The rumor was Storen and Bernadina for CF Denard Span and possibly pitcher Kyle Gibson. Then the Twins started demanding that the Nats top infield prospect Stephen Lombardozzi be included in the deal. That was just too much and even Rizzo isn't stupid enough to do that. He is stupid enough to send The Shark back to Syracuse though, sparking unconfirmed reports that The Shark then asked to be traded. At least he brought some fish tacos with him to Syracuse, but it doesn't look like it is cheering him up:
This is the saddest Shark Week ever.
By the way, the Nats won 3-2 against the Mets yesterday. More recaps when we are less depressed...
More to come.
