Baseball operations: yes; personnel moves: no

Well, while MLB has shut down all operations with the Nationals except baseball-specific operations (i.e., no marketing, promotions, ticket sales, etc.), it appears that for all purposes for us as fans, baseball operations have shut down too. Bowden has apparently said that he will not sign any new players until the team has a definite home, meaning that Odalis Perez and others are off the table, and the Nats/or whoever the heck they become, will sit by as all of the December deals and signings move past them. From the players standpoint, agents have rightfully said that they wouldn't be able to convince any of their players to come to the team anyway, since no one wants to sign up to a team having no idea where he will be forced to live in a year.
Wow, the destruction of a city's dreams AND the rebuilding of a team all in one fell swoop.

No more signings and trades by Jim Bowden? Is this a bad thing?
