WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Even if Adam Lind signed with an annual contender that has a first baseman coming off his worst season and an aging left fielder, he spoke in frank terms while discussing what his contract offer from the Washington Nationals meant. ''It's a J-O-B,'' Lind said. ''I mean, really. Didn't have too much to choose from, so it was nice that (general manager...
