Thom Loverro discusses the Nationals‘ trade with the Marlins:

According to Mike Bernardino of the (South Florida) Sun-Sentinel, (Josh) Willingham is a first-rate teammate and standout guy in the clubhouse. That should be good news for Nationals manager Manny Acta, who now finds himself playing Father Flanagan again for another player, this time (Scott) Olsen, who has a history of personal problems.

Olsen has fought with teammates and was suspended by the Marlins for two games after one fight. He was fined for making an obscene gesture at fans in Milwaukee. He also was arrested for DUI in 2007 in an incident in which officers used a Taser to subdue him. Last season, there were no reported incidents.
