It turns out that assumption was correct.  We've heard enough about the A's and Nationals talking that it probably has some steam.  Here's Rosenthal again:

Trade for <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Athletics&amp;src=hash">#Athletics</a>&#39; Blevins possible. Downs, Howell, Logan, O&#39;Flaherty are FAs in play.</p>&mdash; Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) <a href="https://twitter.com/Ken_Rosenthal/statuses/410799353516027904">December 11, 2013</a></blockquote>

Cotillo also hears it:

I guess when you hear about the Swingin' A's now, swinging trades is what should come to mind.  Chat about today's happenings here!
