Latest Wilson Ramos Items
Maybe the key decision for the Nats will be whether to sign starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann to a long-term contract extension. Shortstop Ian Desmond is in line for one, as well. Both players will be free agents after the 2015 season.
The Nationals believe Wilson Ramos can catch 125 or more games in 2014, leaving them less interested in acquiring a veteran backup.
The odds of Cano, a free agent who has had a brilliant career with the Yankees, joining the Nats are only slightly higher than the odds of a Ferrari showing up under a certain tree in Accokeek, Md. But what's a holiday season without a few dreams? And this is one dream the Nats really should try to make a reality.
The new manager of the Washington Nationals, hired just last week, was a third-base coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks when Wilson Ramos, now Williams' catcher, took his time trotting around the bases after a home run in a game in Phoenix more than two years ago. The fiery side of Williams erupted.

Stephen Strasburg gave up four runs and four hits in six innings to help the Washington Nationals beat the Miami Marlins 6-4 on Sunday.
Pick through the debris from the Nationals' busted season and few scraps elicit more head-scratching than Monday's acquisition of David DeJesus.
