    Bowden arrested (but not for bb decisions)

    From ESPN:

    WASHINGTON -- Nationals general manager Jim Bowden was arrested and charged with driving under the influence while in Florida during his team's series against the Marlins last weekend.

    The Nationals released a statement from Bowden on Tuesday in which he acknowledged what happened. He said he was arrested Sunday evening in Miami Beach.

    "I intend to plead not guilty at a future date in a Miami Dade court. I deeply regret any embarrassment that my arrest may cause the Washington Nationals and Major League Baseball," Bowden said in the statement.

    "On the advice of legal counsel, I will have no further comment regarding this incident until the court proceedings are complete," he said.

    That's a smart career move.

    Only if the leather pants were worn makes it more funny than it should be.

    Jim, hope you and Steve Phillips can be pals. Seems ESPN's in your future.

    If this gets him arrested, what does the Cristian Guzman contract get him? That was a far bigger offense...

    That's a smart career move.
    Almost as much as trading for a pitcher and not doing an MRI...Or trading for an all-star 2b and not bothering to discuss with him that he isn't going to play 2b...Or--never mind, it could go on for days...

    There is nothing funny about this.

    At least that explains his performance in his last 2 front office positions.

    I dunno, if you constructed a pie chart sorting his income relative to his leather pant budget, not sure if there's any funds left for car service...

    Wow. I'm suprised this didn't get more of a response on this board.

    Anyway, do you think we should sign him to play second base?

    I wonder if he has leather pants on? Now that's risky.....possible drink spillage or vomit could really ruin those.

    Although is it serious, we could've offered Womack for Patterson while he was in that state.
