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

A classic thread by nospin.   :clap:


I guess this is what Evo was referring to.   :|



Yeah me memory back to 2007 isn't that great. Gum, sunflower seeds same thing. I just remember being at a game in 2008 or sometime and Belliard striking out and I actually vocalized, "No wonder the owners didn't want to spend for your fat ass to have new bats. You can't hit with the ones you already own."

Yeah the mess hall expenditures take time to clear so we starve most of the season.  :?


Maybe they'll spring for some sunflower seeds ... :)

so if the nats don't sign anybody will it be because they are incompetent and didnt have any pens to sign a contract?

this wouldnt happen if people were give some authority over a small budget, but since everything has be signed off by the lerners and mark got hit in the head with a baseball, it is understandable that they are late on trivial matters

ValueJet used to make their employees return their used pen before they could get another.

No surprise. Kudos to the Stinger for doing this. Many would just go away quietly. It would be one thing if this was an isolated case of one disgruntled employee with an axe to grind. But this isn't just one of several stories, it seems to be consistent with the way the Lerners handle everything.

I just got the packet in the mail from Andy Pfeffer (or whatever his name is.) Every season they waste money and send out this BS under the pen of Kasten, Lerner, not Pfeffer, even though it is the same verbiage written by the same horrible communication staff. Does anyone in the organization actually read this stuff and believe it? And do they really believe that the STHs that they are sending it to actually know so little about the organization that they will actually concur with their marketing BS?

It isn't just about the cheapness/frugality. It is the incompetence and the sense that they don't even try to do anything in a professional manner. The organization is run from the top down by people who simply don't seem to care. It is as bad and in many ways worse than a typical government bureaucracy, giving the impression that everything is done by a bunch of zombies who couldn't care less if what they do is perceived as a quality job or not. The Stinger just got caught in that. Part of it is likely a culture of not paying until you have to. But the other part of it is a culture of people running an operation like they just don't give a damn about what they are doing.

Some people rely on this as an excuse to absolve the Lerners of any fault.  :?

I personally know some people that are like this and I see it as a sign of being cheap.
