Instead of imploding, the team bought into Davey Johnson's way of things. The result, I just told you at the start of this entry. (The record...80-81.) Just in case Davey doesn't want to manage next year, there's one candidate out there as of today.
Terry Francona. (Yes, let's talk about Wednesday night, shall we?)
To see the Red Sox and the Braves BOTH go in the toilet the other night, had to be painful. (Hey, at least I can say the Nats had a hand in Atlanta's troubles...LMMFAO) So rather than suffer the indignity of being fired, Francona did the honorable thing and agreed to cut out on the option(s) for next year and 2013.
(Which means if Mike Rizzo can get on the stick and call up Francona's agent, we can have a proven World Series-winning manager working with this young Nats team. I'm just saying...)
You know, I said the Nats would finish better than the Mets and Marlins. And wouldn't you know it? I GOT PROVEN RIGHT, people!! Damn, I'm good...LMMFAO
If the Nats don't contend next year, it's their own fucking fault!!! You heard it here first...
