Wow.. Absolutely scathing criticism of Rizzo on the front page of the USA Today sports page, including by his fellow executives.
One GM said: "if we don't win the World Series, I don't care who does, as long as it's not those guys. They don't deserve to win it. Not after what they did."
Said another GM: "I hope they go down in flames. I hope it takes another 79 years before they get back to the playoffs. That's how strongly I feel about this."
And like I said, if I am Nats player like Ryan Zimmerman, who has played his heart out for a perennial bottom-feeder... I AM PISSED! I think Rizzo is an absolute fool, and if the Nats get bumped in the first round, he deserves to be fired. Good luck leaving the fate of your franchise's season in the hands of Ross Detwiler.
