Jim Riggleman resigns as manager of the Washington Nationals
"I wanted a conversation about it. I didn't say 'Pick up my option or else.' I said I think it's worthy of a conversation when we get to Chicago. Mike said we're not going to do that."
(Jim Riggleman, via MASN, 6/23/2011)
So Riggleman says he wanted a conversation; Rizzo says Riggleman demanded an extension?
Gotta wonder if this is the kind of change Jayson Werth had in mind when he was "misinterpreted" by the media a few weeks ago when the ship was sinking in Milwaukee?
It's always something with this team.
Next manager of your Washington Nationals will be...Davey Johnson? John McLaren? Mark Lerner?
