Nationals interested in Bourgeois (trade not close)

Per mlbtraderumors.com:

"The Nationals are interested in outfielder Jason Bourgeois and have asked the Astros about him at least three times since the Winter Meetings took place in December, Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports. The two clubs are not close to a deal and one of Ladson’s sources suggests there’s no more than a 50% chance of a trade."

----------------

I wonder what the Nationals could offer that would actually be of interest to the Astros. Obviously there's nothing at this point as a trade isn't even close, but add Bourgeois to the list of assets other teams might actually be interested in.

My best guess is Luhnow is holding out for both Strasburg and Harper while the Nationals only want to offer one of the two. Maybe Washington goes for Strasburg/Harper for Bourgeois, Myers, and (as tough as this would be) Quintero. But ONLY Quintero if the Nationals demand it. That seems fair, no?

/sarcasm (just in case)
