The Nationals have brought back pinch hitter extraordinaire and star of the CBS show “Without a Tracy,” Chad Tracy. He gives the team a valuable bat off the bench, just like a batboy. He also helps the team in a bunch of ways not as widely acknowledged, just like a batboy. And he flies around at night feeding on insects, just like a normal person.
To make room for Tracy, the Nats optioned Corey Brown back to the minors. And just when I thought the team wasn’t going to make any trades, they make one with themselves. I’ve gotta be honest, I think our franchise came out on top in this one.
