Should the Royals have traded for Gonzalez?

The Nats were able to sign him to a 5-year, $42 million extension, with a couple club option years in 2017 and 2018. Gonzalez has posted fWARs of 3.2 and 3.5 the past two years. His new contract seems like it could be an absolute steal if he can keep that up. Or were his numbers just an Oakland-aided mirage? Maybe there is something special about DC for Gio (cherry blossoms?), but you would think he would have accepted the same sort of deal from the Royals.
