Greg Dobbs signs with the Nationals

May 12, 2014, 11:32 AM EDT

The Marlins released Greg Dobbs last week after a grand total of 13 plate appearances. This after signing him to a $1.7 million contract extension. What happened in those 13 plate appearances to change their mind on the guy so fast is a mystery, but Dobbs has a new home now:

Why the Nats even wanted him before 2013 is a mystery given that he’s hit hit.254 with a .299 on-base percentage and .361 slugging percentage in 568 games since 2009. But they got their bench bat a lot cheaper than the Marlins did.

    And the Nationals just became World Series Champions.

    The Nats are playing an IF with one career start in the OF in the minors in LF because of all there injuries. Warm body helps!

    The Nats really like 3B who can’t field.

    He’s on the bench to make McLouth feel better about his batting average.

      There are Tibetan nuns that have never even heard of the game of baseball with better batting averages than Nate McLouth.

        And they play the game the RIGHT WAY, never breaking the unwritten rules.

    Between Dobbs and Marmol, the Feesh brainstem trust is now paying two guys they spent a combined 2.8 million on this orfseason not to play for them. It sure is a relief that they got rid of Larry Beinfest so that some sure-handed baseball people could take over piloting this scow.

    Seventh member of the 2008 Phillies to have Natitude. Only 18 more to go Rizzo. Watch out Matt Williams, Charlie may be available. What a joke of a franchise.
    How did the others work out ?
