For me, I was ready to fire Bowden after he signed Vinny Castilla in 2004, basically his first move as GM. Others have gotten on board gradually over the last 4 years as the team has only gotten worse on the field.
But I sense that this week, after ChiefGate, the dam has broken. Even the most relentlessly optimistic Nationals fans at sites like WeveGotHeart.com and Nats320.com seem ready to throw Bowden overboard.
Click here to sign the Fire Jim Bowden petition. With enough signers, this petition can really help send the message!
We currently have just over 50 signatures, but I believe that if this petition goes viral it could easily far exceed the goal of 1,000. If we can get up into that territory, we will have the makings of a media story. Imagine if there were more people on the Fire Jim Bowden petition than the number of people watching the Nationals on TV? It's not hard to imagine Chico Harlan, Thom Loverro, or even Boz picking up a story like that.
A petition alone won't have a big impact, but combined with all the media pressure, the performance on the field, etc. this can have an impact, if enough people sign.
