The Marlins released Greg Dobbs last week after a grand total of 13 plate appearances. This after signing him to a $1.7 million contract extension. What happened in those 13 plate appearances to change their mind on the guy so fast is a mystery, but Dobbs has a new home now:
Nats sign Greg Dobbs to a minor league deal. Marlins cut him loose last week. Davey really wanted him before 2013.

Why the Nats even wanted him before 2013 is a mystery given that he’s hit hit.254 with a .299 on-base percentage and .361 slugging percentage in 568 games since 2009. But they got their bench bat a lot cheaper than the Marlins did.
