Could Buster Posey Injury Lead To Ivan Rodriguez Trade To Giants?

Setting aside the obvious awkwardness that always occurs when Bowden suggests personnel moves the Nationals should consider, it's not a bad idea if you think about it. The Giants are desperate, Rodridguez is a part-time player and Wilson Ramos has firmly established himself as a legitimate starting catcher in this league.

Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post has more on the Pudge-to-Giants trade idea. The key word is "idea," because there are no indications the Nationals and Giants have had discussions along these lines yet.
