Tavarez Gets Dumped by 600 Pounder


andy_fat_girlWhen Julian Tavarez signed with the Washington Nationals he dropped this great quote about what it was like signing with them:

Why did I sign with the Nationals? 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, what does it feel like when you get unceremoniously dumped by that same 600 pounder? After a month where he went 8 1/3 IP with a 7.56 ERA and a 3.00 WHIP with opposing batters hitting .521 off him over that span, Julian was designated for assignment following Sunday’s depressing 11-3 loss to the Cubs.

I’ve been in this situation before,” Tavarez said. “It’s just tough. I haven’t been able lately to do my job. Just a lot of up-and-down this year. This doesn’t surprise me. There are a lot of young arms down there, they had to make some changes, and they’re going to bring some young kids over here. They have to get this ready for next year.”

This makes it at least the 3rd straight team that has DFA’d Tavarez, with the Nats following the example of the Brewers and Red Sox before them.
