Oh the Majewski drama.
Let’s catch everyone up slowly. The Nats had this relieve with an awesome proto-mullet named Gary Majewski. He had some decent stuff out of the bullpen, but generally, he was prone to mental errors and in those situations, he’d often give up a three run bomb late in the game to cement the Nationals’ place in the cellar of the AL East. Yeah, he blew sometimes, so we traded him with a few other guys for Austin Kearns, Felipe Lopez and another player who didn’t suck.
Apparently, no one bothered to fill in the Reds general manager that Majewski wasn’t exactly an arm upon which you could base your win/loss record. Chris Needham says, “Um, Duuuuuhh!” and Federal Baseball says “No Really, DUUUUUUHHH!” in regards to the claims of Wayne Krivsky that the Nats knew that Majewski wasn’t in the best of health. As a result, we have Jim Bowden and Wayne Krivsky locked in a public war of words that I’d personally like to see turn into a war of fists and knives as part of a pay per view event. Winner gets to die quickly, loser gets to bleed out.
Either way, we’re due to see this get uglier in the public sphere in the not too distant future. As this will be the only thing resembling news from the Nationals’ tailspin into oblivion this season, I fully expect to see this whole thing drag out until next Spring.
