Lerners are Cheap - 2017
« Topic Start: January 18, 2017, 01:09:33 PM »
Didn't know whether this fits in offseason moves or the spring training thread.

@JimBowden_ESPN #Nationals still have interest in both Wieters & Holland..but they are way over budget on Spring Training Complex making decision difficult

Interesting to see they are over budget...Who would have thought with it being a former land fill and all...  :roll:

Given the source and its corresponding tenuous relationship with reality, it probably fits best in the Pro Wrestling thread in the loft.

Given that Bowden hired Rizzo and Rizzo has been interviewed by Bowden several times it could be assumed that Jimbo has a very well placed source who has reason to be upset by the budget constraint.

Yes, but Bowden's other posts on Nationals trades or signings have been spot on...oh.

Yep and that explains the HORRIBLE trade for Eaton.

RIzzo is gone as soon as he can go.....

I think that's the first time I've ever had a post get the mod hammer, and it was a double-hammer with JCA also being struck!  The fire breath speaks!

Oh boy....
Maybe Harper will take a team-friendly deal then for the good of the team? Is that is what he is trying to say?:)

I will never forget when he criticized the fans for leaving early to catch the metro...spoken from a man who hasn't worked a 9-5 in his life....

Harper is already getting accustomed to his special advisor to GM role he wants in his contract for his 450 million contract.
