    We are one week into the month of December and so far the Nationals have been among MLB’s quietest teams this offseason. Aside from picking up Denard Span’s option for 2015 and several minor free agent signings, they have for the most part been inactive. That is not only uncharacteristic of GM Mike Rizzo’s tenure, it…
