    Nats sign a catcher and it's not Eddie Taubensee

    From www.mlbtraderumors.com:

    Nationals Sign Lo Duca
    According to Barry Svrluga of the Washington Post, the Nationals have signed Paul Lo Duca to a one-year deal. He apparently wanted $5MM; I imagine he got a bit less than that. Four days ago Joel Sherman said the Blue Jays were putting the "finishing touches" on a one-year, $3MM deal with Lo Duca.

    My reaction: eh. I'm not sure what Lo Duca adds to the 2008 Nationals that they couldn't get elsewhere for less money. I guess they could hope he has a big first half and then try to flip him for a prospect. Mets fans: is Lo Duca good at naturing young pitchers? That could be one decent reason to sign him.
    I guess Joe Oliver and Dan Wilson were sold on retirement.

    I guess since St. Louis beat him to LaRue, Leatherpants had to make the best of what was around.
