    It's Official. The Nationals have Owners

    The Lerner Group is the big winner. An official announcement is set for 4:45 today. Stan Kasten is to be the President and JimBo is out on the streets very soon.

    Is that the word on the street or just your opinion?

    I envy their choice of Stan Kasten for team president.

    It's most everyone's belief that he will be gone very shortly after everything is settled down with the new ownership. Nearly every move he has made has blown up. I'm sure Kasten will want to bring in his own man to be the GM. Who that will be, I haven't heard.

    I'm sure he still has John Shuerholtz in his little black book....

    Perhaps Jimbo could team with Marty in the booth?

    Who is "most everyone"?? Or is that your opinion that it is "most everyone's belief"

    Sorry to be a butthead. But I heard, "Some people say" on talking head shows too many times.

    It's the sportswriters and talking heads who say they have their sources. That's all I can go by and my own opinion. IMO Bowden has done nothing to deserve to be kept on as GM. Nearly every move from the beginning has been bad. From signing Castilla and Guzman last season, to the Soriano signing without finding out if he was willing to play LF, to signing Brian Lawrence without doing an MRI on his arm, it's been nearly a disaster.

    No thanks. We prefer to hire janitors with out criminal records.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    I doubt he could pry Shuerholtz away from the Braves.

    My guess is their new GM will come from the Braves, possibly Frank Wren or Drayton Moore.

    Personally, I'm very happy, b/c our firm represents Mr. Lerner's development company in real estate and land use transactions. We're not doing the ballpark, unfortunately, but this is exciting news for us.

    Anthony Williams wanted another group, however, and was very vocal about it. Wonder how that will play.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Looks like you will be in line for company tickets. First come, first serve after the bigshots turn them down?

    I wouldn't worry about JimBo. There's always ESPN.
