Da Meat Hook Is About to Get That Paper

Bog has the roundup of ruminations, and it sounds like Dmitri Dell Young has inked a two-year, $10 million deal with the Nats. Amazing considering he was almost out of baseball as recently as four months ago.

I love that Da Meat Hook is here to stay, although this can’t mean good things for Nick Johnson’s rehab seeing as how neither guy plays anywhere but 1B. At least not well.

And while my new “Save Da Meat” tee may be out before it was ever in, bravo to Dmitri, pictured here with his younger brother and Tampa Bay RF Delmon.

Update: Nothing’s final, but sounds like there’s an option for a third year at $6 million if the big man gets 500 ABs in ’09 or 900 combined over the next two years.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    You don’t figure Meat Hook could play shortstop and put Johnson at first? Actually, come to think of it, we need an everyday center fielder…
