Julian Tavarez explains why he signed with the Nationals

Tony ArnoldineCorrespondent IMarch 16, 2009

 

Relief pitcher Julian Tavarez signed a minor league contract with the Washington Nationals on Friday and reported to camp Sunday. When asked why he chose the Nationals, he gave this amazing, hilarious, truthful response:

"Why did I sign with the Nationals? When you go to a club at four 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 four in the morning. Too much to drink. So, Nationals, Jennifer Lopez to me."

That's got to be up there with the all-time great quotes in sports, but I'm wondering how the Nationals feel about it.
