The Nats today traded one of their oldest players and one of their newest, right before the trade deadline at 4pm today. Nick Johnson, one of two players remaining from Opening Day in 2005, is off to Florida in a straight up deal for left-hander Aaron Thompson, currently with the Marlins’ AA affiliate, and Joe Beimel is off to Colorado in exchange for a pair of unnamed minor-leaguers. With Johnson gone, the only remaining “original National” is Cristian Guzman, pictured above. Willingham will likely take over 1st base for a bit.
