Tavarez Cut After Nats Are Swept Away by Cubs – The Post
I was in Pennsylvania this weekend, off the grid and not really following the Nats. They got swept by the Cubs in Washington. Jim Riggleman is now 0-4 as Nationals manager.
Today’s big story seems to be the release of Julian Taverez, the relief pitcher who infamously describe signing with the Nats as such:
Why did I sign with the Nationals?” Tavarez said told a group of reporters. “When you go to a club at 4 in the morning, and you’re just waiting, waiting, a 600-pounder looks like J. Lo. And to me this is Jennifer Lopez right here. It’s 4 in the morning. Too much to drink. So, Nationals: Jennifer Lopez to me.
Well, Tavarez, you were not even good enough for a 600-pounder. Now, go away forever, you talentless moron.
