The Nationals signed Brian Bocock to a minor league contract. For as much as this blog talks about penises, its nice to have a player with a last name like this. With Tom Gorzelanny leaving earlier this offseason, we talked about how we lost a whole lot of joke opportunities. But now the hole that Tom left, can thankfully be filled by Bocock.
Bocock has amassed a rather low -0.9 WAR in just 98 big league plate appearances. Such productivity will fit right in here in the city of Washington. I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a Congressman Bocock after his playing career is over.
