Z-Day. No dice... So far.
Supposedly hinging on the no-trade clause but outside of that room no one can be 100% sure. Seems reasonable though. If Zimmerman really wants to try to finish his career here the last thing he wants is to find out he's been shipped to Colorado in 3 years. On the Nats side they have a potential replacement drafted and Zimmerman is an injury risk. Two bad years in a row, with Rendon knocking at the door, and Rizzo could easily think the Nats are better off eating some of the contract to free up some more money.
Again, because of the strong feeling that both sides really want to come to terms, I don't see a deal happening right now. There just ins't that pressure that can force those last hurdles to be overcome.
