FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING TRADE DEADLINE NEWS: NATS ACQUIRE MARK MELANCON FROM PIRATES

The Washington Nationals finally filled their giant void at closer Saturday by agreeing to a deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates for All-Star stopper Mark Melancon.  Melancon was scheduled to be a free agent at the end of the season and he will now step in for the struggling Jonathan Papelbon.

Analysis:  Great move by the Nats as they finally get someone very capable to be a lock down closer.  This was a perfect answer to the Cubs getting Aroldis Chapman as the two clubs go at it for NL supremacy.  Papelbon meanwhile can be cut in all formats.
