With the Nationals season really only existing in name only at this point, the team is functionally at the point of moving on from the 2010 season. Even though last night, Stan Kasten was claiming there was no update to his status as team president, things have changed since that report. Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated has reported that Kasten will in fact step down, as noted by SB Nation DC. The opinions of Kasten’s impact of the team differ. In one hand, he seems to be okay with the three-time-a-year Philly invasions, but on the other, he has stood up to the Lerners on occasion when it comes to paying for talent.
Between the front office, Strasburg’s recovery and the talk of the future (a la Bryce Harper), this stands to be an interesting off season for the hometown team.
