Good Riddance Ross Ohlendorf!
It’s official! There is absolutely no way Ross Ohlendorf will be a Padre. The Washington Nationals have signed him to a minor league contract, according to MLBTradeRumors.
Gosh! Are the Nationals stupid or what? Ohlendorf SUCKS! Don’t believe me? then check out his numbers from last year.

The 30-year-old pitched in 48 2/3 innings for the Padres last season, but posted a woeful 7.77 earned run average. Some how, some way, Ohlendorf was a .500 pitcher, posting a 4-4 record.
It seemed to me everytime Ohlendorf would pitch, he would get racked. He blew so many wins for the Padres.
Out of desperation,Josh Byrnes took a gamble on Ohlendorf by signing him to a minor league contract in 2012.
Byrnes didn’t know what he was getting him self into, until he came to his senses on Sept. 7 when he released the right-hander.
If I am not making it any clear, I hate Ross Ohlendorf! He is second in line behind Ryan Ludwick as my most hated Padres in team history. So to know that Ohlendorf will not be a Padre makes my year.
Good Riddance Ohlendorf! and I hope you make the Nationals lose every time you pitch for them, just like you did in San Diego.
