I was gone for the last two weeks and I came back to a few things happening on the Nats homefront. I’m not gonna spend too much time on most of it, just a few comments on each things, then hope for some actual news to talk about. So here’s my review of some news that is old:
Since they needed a catcher, they decided to go out and sign a Hall of Famer. Ivan Rodriguez used to be great, and easily one of the best catchers all time. He brings some cache and perhaps can tutor Jesus Flores. Other than that, I see why people were shocked at the signing. At $3M per year for 2 years, he’s the 4th highest paid player on the team per season. For what? He used to be a great defensive catcher and a great hitter. He can still defend, although his arm isn’t what it used to be, and he didn’t hit at all last year, in two friendly parks. Yet, I kinda like this move.
