Rosenthal just bashed the Nats lack of leadership/direction on Washington Post Live. Says, the Lerners haven't hired a full-time GM, they won't let Stan K do his thing, as a whole the think tank doesn't have an ideal manager in mind. Says things must change if this organization ever wants to win and be taken serious. Mentioned it was nice start by drafting Strasburg (and that we will sign him) they need to continue to make positive moves. Also said the way Manny is being treated is wrong - either fire the guy or publicly come out and support him. Says he expects him to be canned this week still though.
You can easily turn that around and say it's a guy pissed off because the team didn't do what he said they would, when he said they would, especially by the "the way Manny is treated" line. Boo-freaking-hoo, you twit. If you were so protective of Manny Acta's feelings, you wouldn't have printed the freaking story! It was Rosenthal airing Acta's laundry, not the Lerners.
You know Rosenthal is sweating buckets right now and has to be taking at least some heat. I agree with what he is trying to say, but a whole lot of what he says is "No crap Sherlock" types of stuff. I'd like to know how he knows the inner workings of the club, so much so that he can say with evidence in hand say that Stan Kasten isn't allowed to do his job. Maybe Stan isn't as effective as everyone imagines. Who really knows the truth.
