Washington Nationals Deny C.J. Wilson Rumor

I'm going to catch you up real quick: there was talk that the Washington Nationals were super interested in C.J. Wilson. Then there was talk that the Nationals were not very interested in C.J. Wilson. Then there was talk that C.J. Wilson had received a six-year contract offer, and that the six-year contract offer came from the Nationals.

Immediately, it made sense, and immediately, there was skepticism. Just Sunday it seemed like the Nationals were pulling away from Wilson. Adam Kilgore did some digging, and here's what he found:

Three Nats sources with knowledge say they have not offered C.J. Wilson a six-year deal. I don't think there's much interest at all.

So much for that, I guess. It doesn't look like the Nationals extended the offer to Wilson. It doesn't look like the Nationals are all that interested in Wilson at all.

But is there still a six-year offer sitting on the table from somebody else? Keep in mind that was a separate rumor, and that rumor hasn't been shot down. It's a mystery!
