Just Another Reason To Keep Him


Interim GM Mike Rizzo doesn't panic. Just take a look at some of these comments on ESPN 980. As written before here and here--"Riz" doesn't force a move just to appear as if any movement involving Our Washington Nationals is forward progress. He is weighing each and every opportunity that falls his way. ONLY THEN--after consultations with staff--does he decide whether any transaction offered is worth snapping at--saying yes.

The African Queen and I like the way Mike Rizzo goes about his business. He takes his work diligently, professionally--all in the effort to put a winner on the field for Our Washington Nationals--while transforming Our Franchise. Hopefully, Upper Management will soon decide that Our Interim GM needs to have his title made permanent. No question, Mr. Rizzo has brought a nice feel plus promise to DC Baseball. Hope recently lost, but now on a recovering path. A future which Sohna and I want to see established as not only credible throughout Major League Baseball--but on the field of play as winners.

Mike Rizzo's appearance on 980AM is Just Another Reason To Keep Him. No question about it.

Concur - Lerners do not like paying for two at same time - 2 pitching coaches, or 2 GM's - thus, he will be elevated when they stop paying the old GM. Incidentally, while everyone and his brother dumps on old Bow-Bow, he is the one who brought in Mike Rizzo...

SenatorNat, I'm pretty sure they're not paying the old GM any more. That's what happens when you quit a job rather than waiting for them to fire you. You don't get paid any more - although I think you can still get health insurance for 18 months under COBRA.

However, maybe they are still paying for the iconic baseball in centerfield. He didn't quit, he was fired!
