According to the Nationals Journal on WashingtonPost.com: "Dave Sheinin just confirmed what I've been trying to for the last couple hours -- that troubled Tampa Bay outfielder Elijah Dukes has been dealt to the Washington Nationals.
We do not yet know who was dealt in return.
Oh yea. I'll give Jim Bowden credit, he's got balls.
The natives in Washington D.C. will not be happy. Perhaps a change in scenery will be good for the young guy, and perhaps he can turn his life around -- he does have the talent, and I guess it supersedes anything else in life.
This is a high-reward/low-risk move unless he gets in trouble with the law again.
