It's never comforting to know that the other team is desperate to move a player

The Nats Blog talks about the potential deal with Houston for Jesus Flores:

It's not clear what Flores could bring in return for the Nationals, but if he is traded it will bring a quiet end to what once seemed to be a promising beginning. With two seasons under his belt before the age of 24, many were hopeful that in 2009 Flores could take the next step with his solid gap power and decent bat control. The backstop had a decent arm, averaging about 30% caught stealing, and blocked the plate well. However, as we all know, he couldn't stay healthy enough to take the step into broader relavency.
