One other crucial bit of news here, despite the impending snowpocalypse: Jim Bowden resigned this morning, saying that the media’s “false allegations” of corruption made it impossible for Bowden to represent the Nationals in an effective way. I suppose he should get the benefit of the doubt, but I can only remember Bowden as a monumental failure, and resigning in disgrace is about as good as it gets.

From the Nationals’ press release comes this important statistic: “Bowden was with the Nationals from 2004-2009. The team never finished over .500 during his tenure, their best season was in 2005, when they went 81-81.”

Good bye Bowden. Please don’t ever, ever come back.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
