Padres hit man Robert Fick signs with the Nationals

I'm a little bummed, cuz if the Pads ever needed to throw down with another team it was nice knowing we had ol' Freckled Ficky there to scrap.  He'll bring the fight with him anywhere he goes.

The Nationals also signed ex-Padres catcher Wiki Gonzales who was good until he got a big contract then he became real lazy and started to suck horribly.  


Signed utility man Robert Fick, who had been with the San diego Padres, to a one-year contract; re-signed pitcher Joey Eischen to a one-year contract; signed catchers Wiki Gonzalez, Mike DiFelice, Alberto Castillo and Brandon Harper to minor league contracts.

What's that song that Fick used for his batting music.  I think it was by D-12.  It sounded like "Go Fick! Go, Goooo Fick!"  When I actually looked up the lyrics awhile back they were nothing like that, just sounded like it.

Oh and "Aussie" Oxspring is gone too:

Padres: Claimed catcher Pete Laforest off waivers from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays; agreed to terms with outfielder Jack Cust on a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training; sold the contract of pitcher Chris Oxspring to the Hanshin Tigers of the Japanese Central League.
