Washington Nationals fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief ... literally. The Nationals have six losses when leading entering the ninth inning, most in baseball and, they now trail the Dodgers by eight games for home-field advantage.
While it seems as though the A's have already been rebuilding the past few years, Beane said it has been frustrating to develop homegrown talent only to trade it away once they get successful, an issue he believes will no longer exist once a new stadium is in place. He has spent his entire six-year career with the Athletics.
Athletics acquired 3B Sheldon Neuse, RHP Blake Treinen and LHP Jesus Luzardo from the Nationals in exchange for LHP Sean Doolittle and RHP Ryan Madson.
It's a big acquisition that fills a lot of holes for Washington. The team not only picks up both a righty and a lefty, but also gained two players with ninth-inning experience.
When healthy, both players have put up strong numbers. He underwent Tommy John surgery in Spring 2012 and was out of baseball until 2015 when he signed with the Royals. Madson has a 2.06 ERA with one save and 39 strikeouts in 40 games this season.
Sean Doolittle is heading to Washington.
Doolittle and Madson are no strangers to Nationals trade rumors.

Doolittle is a 30-year-old lefthander who has held lefthanded batters hitless in 23 at-bats this year with 12 strikeouts and no walks. Treinen is under A's control through 2020. Throughout the course of the 2017 season, Doolittle has posted a 3.38 ERA with a 0.66 WHIP during 21.2 innings of work.
Though Doolittle is several years removed from his 2014 All-Star campaign, he has pitched well over the past two seasons.
Neuse is slightly further ahead. The 22-year-old was ranked by MLB.com as the Nats' No. 6 prospect. Nationals relievers have combined for a 5.34 ERA over 251 1/3 innings.
The Washington Nationals could have a fortified bullpen Monday afternoon when they look to complete a four-game sweep of the Cincinnati Reds. The Montreal Expos/Nationals franchise has never reached the World Series.
The Nationals have been eliminated in the first round every year they've reached the postseason.
Rizzo has often favored an experienced closer, and Madson provides one who is plenty familiar with getting the final three outs of a game.
