I can see that happening too, but IF the Nats have a BIG spring and the Phillies have some problems I can see Washington decide to go for it.
What really works in our favor is the fact that three of the teams that NEED a RH bat or CF and match up best with us are in the same division. If Atlanta or Miami start making a play for Jones, the Nats may jump just to keep him away from the other two. We would be the winner in that war.
