Yes, Mr. Werth is not being especially obvious about what's obvious to him -- but my best guess is he blames his manager.

Let me try to translate:

"I’ve got some ideas obviously" He's got ideas.

"and some thoughts" And thoughts

"none I really want to share with the world" Most of his ideas and thoughts are freaky sex things.

"I think it’s pretty obvious what’s going on around here." This is a bad team.

"I’m not really going to get into it right now. It is what it is." I don't have the time to call out every bad player on the team, I only have 2 hours before I need to catch a plane.

"It’s unfortunate." Man, winning is much better than losing.

"We’re a way better ballclub." (I can't translate this one. Is he speaking English?)

So Werth starts heating him offensively at the time the Nats start underachieving. So he now has the right to be frustrated.

Better to be in his shoes now than 30 days ago!

from Peanuts and Cracker Jacks at 8:54am, I think you are right. Riggleman went from an aggressive manager who was criticized for pulling his starters too quickly (albeit with a lead) and they were winning that way.

Now he is a cautious offensive guy and letting the starters blow up in the 6th and 7th innings.

Sean Burnett and Slaten have been horrible this year and Matt Stairs has cost the team dearly in key spots.


I don't know about Werth's frustration because he won't tell us but mine is that this team doesn't cut the weak links quick enough and to me if you want a better ball club you have to make better personnel decisions. Why wasn't LaRoche DL'd 2 weeks ago?

Being a long term Washington fan(Senators and Nationals), it has been 7 years now and I am tired of hearing "We have a plan" from the GM and ownership. THE PLAN IS NOT WORKING! Maybe if the tightwad owners would hire a "real" GM who has a proven track record of turning around franchises, and a "real" farm director who can draft like the Royals, or a "real" manager who is proven to be a winner, they could put together a competitive team. Finishing last 2 straight years and paying huge sums to first round draft choices does not get the job done. You need "quality" veterans rather than "flunkie" veterans that the Nationals are notorious for. Sad state of affairs.

I can't feel sorry for Jason here. He left a great ballclub chasing the "Oh mighty" dollar.
He needs to shut up and keep collecting that check, he asked for it!
