As I was driving to work this morning, I wondered when the Nationals would try to start signing players from Venezuela, a country loaded with baseball talent and Citgo Oil (ask Joe Kennedy). I also wondered if I left the stove on and if I needed to pick up milk on the way home.
The whole thing Dominican thing is great but the Nationals need a little diversification in its recruiting of foreign-born players.
I can stop wondering as the Nationals signed four Venezuelan teenagers to professional contracts it was announced Wednesday.
Catcher Sandy Leon, shortstop Adrian Sanchez, outfielder Jesus Morales and first baseman Juan Urdaneta were among seven players at a workout in Venezuela recently.
I get it already. The Nationals are going to go after players in the foreign market. Point proven!
