Sorry, I meant the Nats should have hired Gardenhire instead of Dusty after the Bud Black fiasco.

Agree with you on the rest but the Lerners and Rizzo have a history of non-communication and tone deafness that can’t be matched. See: Riggleman quitting over contract issues, Big Marine hiring and firing, Bud Black fiasco, letting Dusty hang out to dry. How they dealt with Dusty reminds me a lot of how the Mets fired Windmill Willie Randolph, one of my favorite managers. Just bad PR that could have been avoided if they had any class.

Dusty always struck me as a good players manager and a really sharp guy. He just trusted his guys too much for me and has always made bad BP and pitching decisions.
