Read the article by Jon Heyman today. Anything other than ownership letting him walk because he wasn't able to get the team past the first round is wild speculation and utter horsecrap. The players shouldn't play worse because their "guy" doesn't have a contract. That is garbage. Gio pitched Game 5 because Dusty put him out there, and didn't pull him early enough because Dusty wanted him to "get out of it". Rizzo traded for three guys who locked down the bullpen even after signing Wieters. Although Wieters committed errors, how about no one on the coaching staff challenging the dead ball in Game 5?

There are no behind the scenes motives on this. Dusty was brought in to manage a dynamite team and get them  done the NLDS. He didn't do that and there are quite a few faults of his own why that didn't happen. Move on.
It's funny when posters claim they know things about Nats players attitudes--like they text with them all regularly.
You are correct; it's a tough profession.  They are not going to fire the players.  The owners are going nowhere.  Rizzo is safe but not forever.
