Willingham, Olsen to... wait, this can't be right

Josh Willingham and Scott Olsen are, according to Peter Gammons, headed to the Washington Nationals for Emilio Bonifacio, P.J. Dean and Jake Smolinski.

In three full seasons, as well as bits of two others, Willingham's a career .266/.361/.472 hitter, but he hasn't quite matched his 2006 season (.852 OPS, near-.500 SLG, 26 HR). Meanwhile, Olsen's had a rocky tenure with the Marlins, but still had a 4.20 ERA in 33 starts.

Bonifacio's arrival more'n likely means Uggla's FINALLY moving off 2B, but is that all there is to this deal?
