2018 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE FALLOUT: CUBS TO ACQUIRE DANIEL MUPRHY AS NATS THROW IN THE TOWEL

Struggling in a recent series versus the lowly Miami Marlins looks like it finally gave Washington Nationals GM Mike Rizzo the personal green light to begin unloading players and it appears All-Star second baseman Daniel Murphy will be one of them as the Chicago Cubs are on the verge of acquiring him after winning a waiver claim.  While Murphy took his time returning to the Nats after offseason microfracture in his knee, he has gotten his average up to .300 with 6 home runs, 17 runs scored, and 29 RBI in 56 games at the age of 33.  Finishing up the final year of his original three-year deal with the Nats, Murphy still retains some of the best contact ability in the game as shown by his crazy good 8.3 K/9.  It should certainly a server as a fantasy baseball boost for Murphy going to a more offensive park in Wrigley Field for his home games.  In addition, we can safely say the Nats will go down as a colossal bust this season as a team given the expectations they carried coming out of spring training.
