Nationals = 600 pounder at 4 a.m.

    From Washington Post via benmaller.com:

    The longer Julian Tavarez thought about the Nationals, they better they looked. The team first contacted Tavarez in November, inviting him to spring training on a non-guaranteed minor league contract. Tavarez said no. He kept waiting. He played earlier this month for the Dominican WBC team, throwing 1 1/3 innings. But with spring training just around the corner, Tavarez was still very much unemployed. The Nationals called again, offering the same deal. "Why did I sign with the Nationals?" Tavarez said on Sunday. "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."

    I love the honesty from Tavarez.

    With apologies to Moddy, this is the ultimate Nationals comparison.

    Would he have done the same had the '62 Mets called him twice?

    I laughed like hell when I read that in the Post.
    Of course, there's a reason all the hotties didn't want him. He's my age and he's no good.

    I'm sure his teammates are going to love that.

    Washington Nationals -- the slumpbusters of the NL
  7. And pretty much insane.

    Not to mention a homophobic asshole.

    Wonder if Jim Bowden's still pulling the strings somehow. ::)

    In the interest of fairness, a 600-pounder would take one look at Julian and think he's slumpbuster herself.

    Dude looks like his face caught on fire and somebody beat it out with a pair of track spikes.

    Hysterical quote.

    He's a very entertaining guy.

    That is a "before" picture if I ever saw one.
