Frank Gets Something LESS--From MLB
After all the bitterness and hard feelings, that still exists in Frank Robinson's head, Our First Manager has been rewarded by Major League Baseball with a Front Office Position at MLB--Special Advisor to the Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations. Frank has defiantly claimed he wants to do something special, something of importance in baseball, not be a figurehead. Well, the special assistant to the assistant of the President of MLB, under the Commissioner of Baseball, Bud Selig, sure doesn't sound too promising.
And, according to Mark Zuckerman at The Washington Times, Robinson has turned down the final request from General Manager, Jim Bowden, to allow Our Washington Nationals to honor him this final season at RFK Stadium. Dear Frank--Your Day Is FOR US!! Fans!! to recognize YOU!! Its not for The Nationals.
Pretty sad, if you ask me. Frank, I love you. But, you are disappointing me.
