Re: Official Nationals and Orioles 2011 Thread

so i guess bobby bonilla's agent is the greatest agent in the history of modern sports


Quote:
The Mets will pay Bonilla $1.2 million annually for the next 25 years despite him not having played for them since 1999 or in the big leagues since 2001....


Bonilla is also being paid $500,000 annually by the Baltimore Orioles until 2015 for a similar buyout and he holds a “special assistant” job with MLB that pays him $200,000 a year.

I'll be at the Nats/O's game in Baltimore tomorrow night - I really hope the Nats can put up at least half the runs they put up tonight! 17!!!! That might be a franchise (c. 2005) record!

Re: Official Nationals and Orioles 2011 Thread

This is unbelievable. 11-1 in their last 12 games and they let Riggleman resign?!

Riggleman quits as Nationals manager - Nationals Journal - The Washington Post

At some point, someone else will post in this thread

Yeah what the hell is that all about? I'm at work right now, but I'd love to be listening to ESPN980. Czaben and Pollin are probably all over this with Mark Zuckerman...

Quite an interesting exchange via press conference b/w Rizzo and Riggle

Riggle: I'm too old to be disrespected

Rizzo: Guess someone doesn't believe in putting team first

I think the team's "success" is more a reflection of the work Rizzo has done than Riggleman, and I think Riggleman basically took advantage-as well as he should-of the winning streak to ask for his option.

Short term Riggleman abruptly re-signing is kinda chaotic for a team on a hot streak, though. It's not like this was a power struggle b/w the two. Not that I know of at least. I mean I don't think Rizzo was telling the Lerners either he goes or I go.
