Tongue to Washington
Ronnie Belliard was signed late last night by the Washington Nationals. The Nationals didn't even have to guarantee Belliard a major league contract, but got away with a measly $750,000 minor league contract. Ronnie could of gotten lots more money if he would of had the luck of being in a free agent market with less secondbaseman, but he was not granted this luck but he was rather in a market overpowered with 2B'man. Cleveland Fans still love Ronnie from the time he played in Cleveland, nicknaming him "tongue" because he fields the ball with his tongue sticking out, reminiscent of Michael Jordan. I give this deal a 6 out of 10 because major league players that had some trouble in the previous season still have a great chance of being pretty good.
