Quick: someone buy Matt Williams a "I became manager of the Washington Nationals and all I got was I didn't even get this lousy t-shirt" t-shirt.
Adam Kilgore's piece on new Nats manager Williams in the Washington Post over the weekend is certainly worth your time. Same goes for the outtakes of the interviews Kilgore posted on Nationals Journal, which include this fascinating tidbit about how Williams had to go online and buy his own Nationals gear after being hired:
On the first day we met with Williams, he wore a red polo with the Nationals’ logo. Somehow, it came up that Williams had gone online at the team store to buy a bunch of shirts and gear himself, as opposed to the Nationals sending him it for free. (via Nationals Journal, 2/10/2014)
Send the man a polo shirt, Rizzo!
