The Reds should not rule this out of hand. Remember, whenever you can get another organization to overpay for a closer, cash in. Washington is desperate. Really, really desperate. There will be other closers on the market for Dusty Baker’s Nats, but Iglesias is the best long-term option. He’s signed through 2020.
3.5 years of cost-controlled, 100-mph throwing Raisel Iglesias would be the biggest trade chip of the rebuilding process. The Reds should ask for and only settle for the moon. No harm done if they keep Iglesias. The return would have to be *by far* the biggest haul of the rebuild.
