WASHINGTON — Well, so much for that rumor.
On Tuesday, rumors circulated that the Nationals were interested in Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon.
On Wednesday, Nationals General Manager Mike Rizzo firmly put the kibosh on that rumor when he joined The Sports Junkies for his weekly call on 106.7 The Fan.
Host Jason Bishop asked Rizzo if there was any truth to the Blackmon reports, and the GM quickly debunked that rumor.
“You know, I don’t comment on anything we’re trying to do or not trying to do, but, uh, no,” Rizzo said. “That one’s not accurate.”
Ah. Never mind then.
The whole call with Rizzo is available below.
