Reds make a deal with Washington

8-player deal with the Reds giving up Felipe Lopez, Austin Kearns, and Ryan Wagner for Gary Majewski, Royce Clayton, Bill Bray, Brendan Harris, and Daryl Thompson.

I don't know much about the last three Nats guys, but I really don't understand this deal from the Reds perspective. They're giving up 3 young, decent to good players for some guys that don't seem to be able to really help them much this year. Just the downgrade at SS alone is enough to make me wonder why the Reds agreed to this.
