Jon Heyman Says the Lerners Are Standing by JimBo

SI.com's Jon Heyman had reported that Bowden was in trouble last month. But today we get this:
Nationals upper management is said to be supporting embattled GM Jim Bowden, who's being investigated in the scout skimming scandal, not to mention the architect of one awful team. Bowden is seen as having an especially tight relationship with the Nationals-owning Lerner family. And at this point, I'd have to question their taste.
If only JimBo was as good at assembling winning baseball teams as he is as at sucking up...
  • Just another little tid bit I'm just passing along--the Cincy Enquirer's baseball blogger Paul Daugherty wants the team to bring back Barry Larkin after his current contract with the Nationals expires at the end of this year. I'm not sure I can think if a reason why we should care either way.

Clueless.

The Lerners, Bowden, and Kasten are fools. Don’t even get me started about the Lerner's poodle, Tom Boswell. Thank goodness we have the Washington Capitals. Their management is competent and likeable.

Not a lot of love for the Nationals on the blog today.

Just wait. Tonight's the night we get to Tim Hudson.
