C.J. Wilson Gets Six-Year Contract Offer From Nationals, According To Report

C.J. Wilson is a free agent looking for a six-year contract, and early reports had the Washington Nationals as the favorites to sign him, because the Nationals have demonstrated a willingness to blow other teams out of the water, and a lot of teams thought that six years for Wilson was too many.

Then Sunday, there were reports that the Nationals see Wilson as being overpriced, and were turning their attention to Mark Buehrle instead. Buehrle isn't looking for six years. Buehrle is looking for three or four years.

Now this! This, from Jim Duquette:

Source- Nats are the team offering 6th year to CJ Wilson.

Word emerged Monday that some team had offered Wilson a six-year contract. Now, if Duquette's report is to be believed, that team is the Nationals. Duquette could be wrong, of course, but it would definitely make sense if it were the Nationals, since, who else would offer Wilson six years? Probably not the Angels. Probably not anyone.

So we'll see. If the Nationals have offered Wilson six years, and if those six years come with appropriate money, it's hard to imagine any other team topping it.
