I didn’t know what to make of the Nationals signing Tony Womack Thursday to a minor league deal.  I managed four items.

-I thought for a moment that Womack played for Washington in 2005. Then I realized that was Junior Spivey. I always get these two mixed up: both are middle infielders types who played for the 2001 World Champion Arizona team. Womack and Spivey have played for the Cardinals, not at the same time though.

-I wonder how many times I’m going to hear the following phrase this season: “Womack is 37, one year younger than the manager Manny Acta.” 

-This must be Rule 666 of the Plan. Bring in a 37-year-old utility infielder/outfielder at bargain basement prices.

– Of course, Womack is a former Red. It all makes sense now.
