This report about Nick Markakis' deal leaves me with two thoughts, or maybe a third:
*Is he really worth THAT much?
*If so, how much is Zimmerman worth? This guy isn't as good, right?
*Why can't the Nats get something done with Zimmerman? The Capitals earned a lot of good will with their growing legion of fans by locking up the NHL's best player long term. Why can't the Nats put something together for Zimmerman?
