Be sure to listen for the ambient violin music while you read about former Washington Nationals GM Jim Bowden defending himself (DC Sports Bog, The Post) from mean-ol’ Tom Boswell. Who’d have thunk signing fat, diabetics (Dmitri Young) for two years could go wrong?
Jim Bowden may have been deposed as Washington Nationals general manager last spring, but he continues to be thorn in the side (DC Sports Bog) of Nats fans. At the very least, he has a bizarre personality — I think he has absolutely no self-awareness. Bowden was a terrible GM and may be a worse person. With that in mind, I propose a radical idea — ignore him. Personally, I don’t plan on posting anything else about him unless there is something meaningful, like a conviction for his “Smiley” related activities in the Dominican Republic. I haven’t followed him on Twitter and I hope if you are that you stop. Maybe he’ll just go away.
Nationals cut ties with Cardenal – nationals.com
Speical advisor to the general manager, Jose Cardenal has been released by the Nationals. He was hired by Jim Bowden which is why he has been let go. He has no hard feelings and neither do I, the organization just needs to remove as many remnants of the Bowden era as they can.
Unfortunately, you are probably going to have to see an annoying Pepto Bismal (which I once had a nasty allergic reaction to) ad five times. I suppose it is an appropriate sponsor for a Jim Bowden interview though and given that I used to link to a photo of a horse’s ass as a file phone for him, well you’ll see…
