The Nationals...are waiting to find out, and want to learn more about Bowden's possible involvement in a growing baseball-wide scandal before they determine whether he retains his job. But behind the scenes, according to sources, some within the team's ownership group -- which includes Managing Principal Owner Theodore N. Lerner, seven principal owners and nine founding partners -- are eager to cut ties with the general manager they inherited almost three years ago, and see the investigation as a way of facilitating Bowden's exit. The Nationals, one source said, are encouraging the investigation to return an answer on Bowden so the parties can "go on their merry way."
Please let this be true!! I was beginning to believe that something terrible was happening-that the ownership actually wanted Bowden to stay so they would have a sca
pegoat for their cheapness. But if they finally can him now, all of those thoughts would be erased. PLEASE, LERNER FAMILY, DO WHAT IS RIGHT!
Do it for the fans!
Do it for the Nation's Capital!
Heck, DO IT FOR THE NATION! THE UNITED STATES ARE COUNTING ON YOU, THEODORE N. LERNER. DO WHAT IS RIGHT! DO IT FOR BARACK, DUBYA, BRITNEY SPEARS AND SANTA CLAUS, JUST DO IT!!!!
