This latest JimBow mess is all over the Interwebs and numerous sites do a much better job 'splaining things than I ever could. In short, our man appears to be in a whole heap o' trouble.
So let's play a game. Two dates: When he pulls a "Rijo" and goes away for a while and when he's dismissed.
Since it is my blog, I go first. Wednesday, he's outta there for a while. He doesn't want to be a distraction. I'll take April 22 for the bye-bye announcement.
Given the timing, I'm sure Rizzo will get promoted. I'm sure he's a great guy and he may well be qualified. But I fear he'll make Washington the Land of the Former D-Backs like JimBow made it the Land of the Former Reds. I'd love to see a fresh face, a fresh approach.
Winner of the contest gets a beer at Nats Park on me at the first game I attend after JimBow goes AMF. If I win, well, just having that change made is enough of a prize. Nats Town is gonna get a new mayor!
