Poll

After a careful review of the available evidence, I have concluded that the Nats organization is

just plain cheap
merely incompetent
cheap AND incompetent
a superbly run business
dealing with a guy who holds a grudge for reasons beyond slow pay

You're the most annoying by far. But I did enjoy your "drum" post :)

thanks!  hey maryland basketball season is here!!!

but while you or anyone may think i'm annoying, i think the way the nats owners treat the fans is annoying.  monkey see, monkey do.

You're assuming that he didn't speak to anyone about it.  That seems like a stretch to me.

Why not mention what they told him? And why are they so quick with the payment when it is on a blog, but not when they employ talks to them directly? It has the feel that his blog post was the first they heard about it. It also has the feel that Kasten didn't like him and wanted him to quit and was paying him late on purpose, and he got forgoten about in the change over.

Either way this is a big bungle from the business side of the front office. Which is actually worse than baseball bungles as I have heard the Lerners know how to run a business. Of course they are also used to dealing with contractors who never pay anyone on time.

You just called yourself a monkey, now that's fitting :)

Yes! Psyched for Maryland hoops, always. Did you watch the srimmage? The kids looked great, fast break basketball, passes all over the court. It was fun.

they are going to be so fast AND deep.  call me crazy, i wouldn't be surprised to see this team get to the sweet 16 if they are clicking on all cylinders.  i wish i could be as optimistic about the nats as i am about the terps.

If he's the guy that's steamed about the PA announcer choice, and I think he is, that would fit.

if everyone stopped talking about people talking about frugality there would be a lot less posts about it :?

Wouldn't you rather they show Dunn, Werth, and Lee the money than you. No offense but I won't renew if the Nationals sign you.

haha none taken, but you're missing my point.  i want them to get dunn/werth/lee.  that's where i want them to show me the money.

i'm going to continue and be stubborn and not make a move on getting tickets next season or adding any merchandise, etc until the Nats show they are willing to spend on a better product.

He's referring to the poll I added at the top of the thread.  Have your vote counted!

Remember the Rosenthal reports and all those people from Mr. Lerner's past companies? They can't all be wrong.

Thanks TT.   In that case, I changed it to "B" only.    I think not getting paid on time is a legitimate complaint and not necessarily a grudge.   I guess I'm just not enamoured with the detail of his complaint.   No need to drop names and write about the PA job.    Just quit  ....

Sadly, C.

Too many stories from people that are leaving that points to both the Lerners being over their heads, and too tight fisted with their money to ever be owners that care about anything other than profit.
