SHOCKING!

This post deserves a Drudge siren.

Need I say more?

According to Chico Harlan of the Washington Post, the Nationals have signed catcher Javier Valentin to a minor league contract.

Valentin, 33, hit .256/.326/.411 with four home runs and 18 RBI in 129 at-bats for the Reds last season.  He’ll be given a shot to win the backup catching job over Wil Nieves this spring.  Nieves, 31, batted .261/.309/.341 with one dinger and 20 RBI in 176 at-bats during the ’08 season.
