Nationals Sign Bret Boone

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.
