Ivan Rodriguez is one of the best catchers in the game. He is a surefire candidate to get into cooperstown.
Now what the hell is he doing with the Nationals???
Seriously, this is one of the worst teams in the league. Other players have fallen this low, such as Dmitri Young, Austin Kearns, Adam Dunn, Paul Lo Duca- you get the point. I'm just saying-why would someone like the Nationals jump at the sugggestion of signing an aging catcher? Seriously, he has a few years left, but he's not the catcher he was at the beginning of the decade.
Of course, this was just what Wade Boggs did when finishing his career- he signed with the low rate Rays. And we all know how that turned out for him- it only strengthened his HOF-worthy career. So it could go either way- it could go in the direction of Boggs, or the direction of all the other aging players on that team.
In other news, Brad Penny has signed with St. Louis, but who really cares about that?
