ESPN.com news services
VIERA, Fla. — Jim Bowden resigned Sunday after four seasons as the Washington Nationals general manager, leaving under the cloud of a federal investigation into the skimming of signing bonuses given to Latin American prospects.
He has maintained his innocence in the matter, but said Sunday, “I’ve become a distraction.”
“It’s an emotional decision. It saddens me. But I feel it’s in the best interest of two of the things I love the most, and that’s the Washington Nationals and baseball,” Bowden added….
No replacement was immediately announced….
Thank goodness! Bowden is an idiot who has done little to improve the Nationals fir the long term. Goodbye and good riddance!
