I don’t have enough for an odds and ends post at the moment, so it’s Bret Boone’s lucky day. The Nationals have signed the 38 year-old second baseman to a minor league deal. The organization is already home to Bob and Aaron Boone.
Bret comes out of retirement in an attempt to crack Washington’s roster as a utility guy. They’ve already got Ron Belliard and Felipe Lopez competing for time at second base. The Nationals hope Boone can reprise his 2001 line: .331 average, 37 home runs, 141 RBIs. Man I wish he was on my fantasy team that year.
