He doesn't give a time frame

Well, they’re on the 95 year cycle between wins currently, so it’s down to 90

He should just STFU...him and his stooge Rizzo...


Amen to that, brother. He should put his money where his mouth is.

True, I guess he intentionally said it in a vague way.

You probably want Leonsis to STFU also. 

These guys are richer than us and we need reminders that they always know best.

Ted and his smarmy army especially...

Until Snyder sold we had, arguably, top 5 worst owners in every major sport- quiet a feat

Lerners got us our first World Series in 100 years.

Leonsis got us our first Stanley Cup.

DC Defenders went to the championship game and they put on a helluva party at their games. Plenty of beer and rowdy behavior.

Since this is a sunshine topic we won't mention the local basketball team.

One positive for the Wizards is they were able to dump Bradley Beal.

Look up tanking in the dictionary and you see a Wizards team picture.

That made me chuckle but not really true.  They have been in the playoff hunt or in the playoff for years.   At least since when Wall was drafted.  Ted finally has listened to someone who has convinced him on a full rebuild.  Not sure it will last though.

I do think they have competent people selecting the players now finally.

It’s going to take a while.  Not sure Ted will be patient enough.

Does full rebuild mean having another team go 34-48 year after year after year after year after…

This team is nowhere near as dysfunctional as the Raljon Football Team or the DC basketball team that rebranded 30 years ago with a name that still sounds silly.

Lipscomb may be our everyday second baseman far sooner than expected.

He's a contact hitter that fits well within the mold of this team's strategy, but I like him, and he doesn't make the bonehead plays Garcia does..

I don't know if the defensive PotY was more for his versatility than for actual D at any position, but assuming they fed him all these positions because he could handle just about the entire defensive spectrum, that is a heck of an asset.

I sort of feel we may be getting to the stage of the kind of wave the Royals has in the early 2010s with Gordon (a little older), Perez, Hosmer, Cain, etc...

It's a model that worked. Gotta get the pitching though. Biggest shame for those Royals teams was the loss of Ventura. That probably held them back from having a longer window. Oh yea, and they are allergic to spending.
