Nats - Signed Anderson
Washington Nationals - Signed IF Marlon Anderson to a 2-year, $1.85 million contract for no reason in particular.
Remember playing Musical Chairs in kindergarten? There’d always be some kid who wouldn’t quite grasp the complex rules and stands there looking stupid while everyone’s sitting down and starts bawling until the kindergarten teacher gives him or her a rainbow sticker or an oatmeal cookie. That’s the existence you live when the nicest thing someone can say about your playing skills is you’re a good pinch-hitter.
Luckily for Marlon Anderson’s accountant, his kindergarten teacher isn’t a 26-year-old psych major making $25K, it’s Jimmy Bowden, who throws millions at anybody whose name he remembers when he’s not batting his eyelashes at the dreamy Aaron Boone. I think I’d rather have the oatmeal cookie in my employ - they’re tasty, with or without raisins, and don’t make Cristian Guzman a very rich man.
As a player, Anderson won’t hit much, or field much. But golly, he won’t suck quite as bad as the pitcher! And isn’t that worth a million?
