Hahn says Daniel Hudson “probably currently takes the mantle as the best pitching prospect in the system” and “arguably could help us in the next several weeks if we needed it.”

Jerry gave the OK though:

“I talked to [team chairman] Jerry [Reinsdorf] and said `we’re either in it to win it or we’re not,’ ‘’ Williams said. “There was a little trepidation on the finances [on Reinsdorf’s part],” but Reinsdorf again okayed the move Williams had hoped to complete months earlier. … With Peavy comes more than $42 million in contract obligations remainined on the $52 million extension he signed before the 2008 season. Peavy is being paid $11 million this year, $15 million next season, $16 million in 2011 and $17 million in 2012.

Jon Heyman:

According to Nationals president Stan Kasten, they plan to hire a permanent GM soon. Acting man Rizzo appears to be a candidate, though some outside rumblings regarding Rays executive Gerry Hunsicker, White Sox exec Rick Hahn, Marlins scout Dan Jennings and Red Sox exec Jed Hoyer can’t make Rizzo feel completely secure. Kasten, who was being virtually ignored for a while, gets to make the call, as he should.

Isn’t Rick Kenny’s successor? I hope he stays. Give the man a raise Jerry!
