Former Dodger Paul Lo Duca agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Washington Nationals.

WASHINGTON -- The Nationals agreed to terms with Paul Lo Duca on a one-year deal on Monday, according to a baseball official. The deal will not be announced until after a physical has been completed.

Lo Duca played with the Mets the last two years. In 2007, Lo Duca hit .272 with nine home runs and 54 RBIs. He also helped guide New York to the National League Championship Series against the Cardinals.

Lo Duca, 34, will be the everyday catcher, while Jesus Flores most likely will be the backup.

For the first time in his career, LoDuca gets to play in a brand-spanking new ballpark. That is, unless he's spending all his time at Pimlico (a Preakness weakness, perhaps?).

There's a joke somewhere in there about fillies (Phillies?), but it's late and I just got back from a Christmas party and had way too much wine to make it work.
