Pete Orr signs with the Nats

Geez, between the Washington Nationals signing both Ryan Langerhans AND Pete Orr, am I going to have to start following the team more closely? I love Langy and Pete so...I hope the ladies in Metro DC appreciate what they're getting here!

WASHINGTON -- The Nationals added more depth by signing left-hander Ray King and infielder Pete Orr to non-guaranteed Minor League contracts with an invitation to Spring Training.

The left-handed-hitting Orr spent last year with the Braves and went 13-for-65 (.200) with two RBIs. His best season came in 2005 when he hit .300 with a home run and eight RBIs for Atlanta. Orr can play second and third base and the outfield.

Also, is it just me, or is Stan Kasten stacking the Nats with former Braves? They now have Langy, Pete Orr, Willie Harris, and Ray King...granted, they're Braves castoffs who should be playing AAAA ball (if that existed), but still...

Thanks to Hobbes at Chop Nation for the article.
