Madson has a 2.11 ERA, which is a career-best.
On the one hand, it's hard to imagine Washington ponying up for someone like Robertson, who's earning $12 million this year and another $13 million next season - especially after the not-so-inexpensive acquisition of Madson and Doolittle. On Saturday, the relief corps almost blew a 10-0 lead in Cincinnati, allowing seven runs over the final three innings to elevate its ERA to 5.34, highest in the majors.
"We got two quality human beings who are great teammates", Washington general manager Mike Rizzo said. They also hosted, planned and financed a Thanksgiving dinner for refugee families in Chicago, which is where Dolan is from, according to the New York Times.

It has been a subject of "robust discussion", according to three people with knowledge of the talks who were cited by The Post. The resolutions automatically trigger floor votes if they don't get action in committee within 14 legislative days.
Luzardo, 19, is 1-0 with a 1.32 ERA (2 ER/13.2 IP) in three starts for the GCL Nationals. He had a 3.62 ERA and 30 saves last season for the Athletics. They trade for a pair of them and refuse to name either the closer. In exchange, they get a power arm in Treinen that could become a closer down the road.
After whiffing on the big three of Aroldis Chapman, Kenley Jansen and Mark Melancon in free agency last winter, the Nats initially anointed the unproven Treinen, who quickly proved that, good as he was in setup duty previous year, he wasn't ready for prime time.
Though the A's bullpen as a unit has had similar struggles this season to Washington's, Madson and Doolittle were not complicit in those struggles. At 30, he has two team options for 2019 and 2020 for $6.25 million average a season with a $500k buyout.
Neuse, a 22-year-old who plays shortstop and third, was a second-round draft pick in 2016 and is hitting.291 with nine homers and 51 RBIs at Class A Hagerstown in the South Atlantic League.

While authorities said they're making progress in the search, Weintraub also said foul play is suspected in the disappearances . The multi-agency investigation into centered on a farmland property in Solebury Township owned by Antonio and Sandra Dinardo.
Neuse and Luzardo are both considered top-10 prospects in the Nationals' farm system. In addition, right-handed pitcher Joe Ross was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. Oakland selected the contract of right-hander Simon Castro from Triple-A Nashville.
Though Doolittle is several years removed from his 2014 All-Star campaign, he has pitched well over the past two seasons.
A shift from the American League West to the National League East should conceivably help improve Doolittle and Madson's numbers.
