Rob Neyer says that Jim Bowden is probably going to be fired soon as the Washington National’s General Manager. This is very surprising news. Also surprising is the fact that the sun rose in the east this morning.

Keep up with all the developments at the Fire Jim Bowden blog.

    I’ve never met the guy, but Bowden always struck me as a sneaky litte …t. He appears to be the type of guy that after you shake hands with him, you’d better count your fingers.

    for all i know, the bowden love is either because

    1) he’s a good guy (have heard lots to contradict that, but whatever)


    2) it is true that the last time this team made the playoffs or even had a winning record, he was the gm.

    as far as i’m concerned, give him the chair.

    I always thought him to be pretty shakey. #1 for any good management person is to glorify your personnel more than yourself. When he started making commercials after the Griffey Trade I knew who he was. So he failed #1.

    I was always disappointed that Rijo and Larkin went to work for him. We see what has happened to Rijo. I wonder if there will be any spillover to Larkin. I hope not.

    Is this surprising? Bye,bye to the former Red mafia in D.C. also.
