Here’s a quote from newly signed Washington Nationals relief pitcher Julian Tavarez. Something tells me that he was holding out for a better offer (a move made popular by Turk Shanks).
Why did I sign with the Nationals?” Tavarez said told a group of reporters. “When you go to a club at 4 in the morning, and you’re just waiting, waiting, a 600-pounder looks like J. Lo. And to me this is Jennifer Lopez right here. It’s 4 in the morning. Too much to drink. So, Nationals: Jennifer Lopez to me.”
Isn’t it amazing Mr. Tavarez? When you are 1200 years old and you have been designated for assignment from a half dozen teams the market for your services are surely going to dry up. Pull a Bobby McFerrin and be happy.
