Nick Green signs with the Dodgers

Jan 11, 2010, 3:02 PM EDT

Rosenthal tweets that Nick Green has signed with the Dodgers.  He’d be Rafael Furcal’s backup.

Green had 309 plate appearances as he became the 2,406th (approximately) dead end in the Red Sox’ Murphy-Brown-secretaryish, Spinal-Tap-drummerish search for a permanent solution at shortstop.

    Nick Green has the most inaccurate arm I have ever seen on a shortstop. No idea of when to eat the ball, either. He’d throw the ball into the seats or right field on a play that he had no chance of making in the first place. It was really something to behold.

    You have to give the guy a little credit. He was supposed to be a back up to Lugo and Lowrie, but ended up being the number one shortstop for the Bosox through a big portion of last year. He was there when they needed him, including his two innings of scoreless relief pitching. Good luck, Nick Green.

    Those Murphy Brown/Spinal Tap references gave me a good chuckle. Well-done.

    The Dodgers have shown a great desire to get all the A,AA,and AAA ball players at great costs inorder to persue forth place in their devision.

    Nice Murphy Brown reference. I would have gone with Seinfeld-girlfriendish, which is only slightly less dated.
