The Nationals today signed catcher Paul Lo Duca.
Of course, this means little for the Nationals chances of winning the NL East (they won’t). But it’s just more evidence that Jim Bowden loves the blogosphere and will do anything and everything within his power to make our lives easier.
Because, when you’ve already signed a guy with five children by four different women whose wife recently sought a restraining order against him, another guy who was cut from his previous team because of a drinking problem, and a third guy who wants to be a gangsta rapper and pissed off his teammates so much they hung a sign in his locker reminding him to mind his p’s and q’s, why not sign a catcher with a history of gambling debts and extra-marital affairs with 19 year-olds?
I can’t think of a single reason.
