"I'm all right with the decision. It wasn't the right place for me to be playing. I didn't fit well into their plans. It's OK. I like [manager Jim] Riggleman. I like [general manager Mike] Rizzo. They are a good group of guys."

The Adam Kennedy Era is over. After failing to lure Orlando Hudson to the Nationals last winter, Adam Kennedy was Mike Rizzo's fallback plan. Instead, he became Jim Riggleman's biggest regret last season.
And with that Adam gone, it's just a matter of time before Mike Rizzo shows that other guy named Adam the door -- you know, the guy named Adam who mashes baseballs.
