Nationals Manager Riggleman resigns because of contract

Told GM before the game that he would resign after the game if they didn't pick up his option today. They played the game, swept Seattle and then he resigned.

I don't know if I've ever seen anything like this.

And that shows how rinky dink the Nats are compared to even us. Seriously... dude has your franchise going in the right direction and all he asks is his 2012 option to be picked up and you don't do it??? What are you thinking?!?!?!

That said, it's not like a manager is THAT much of a difference... but wow.

Eh, I'm on the other side of it. I don't think the Nationals have to give him an extension yet. Wait til the end of July, then offer him one if they show some proloinged success. I don't know why Riggleman is so impatient.

I completely agree. Especially given that Riggleman isn't exactly a hot commodity. Just an unbelievably dumb move by Riggleman. His days as a Major League manager are toast. I don't see any way another team gives him another shot after this. Ever. Dude hung all of his players completely out to dry.

He should of played out his contract. He signed it. It is an agreement for a length of time.

Touchy little baby. Maybe he turns the team around has a great record and in the offseason gets a wonderful deal either there or in a better city?

    • If Houston wins, Texas wins and Toronto loses: Astros will be the No. 5 seed, playing Tampa Bay And Toronto would play Twins in wild card and if they win , we face them in ALDS    i think lol 
    • You mean like how Witt Jr greatly improved his defense from 2022 to 2023 while in the majors?
    • I am in no hurry to promote Holliday or Mayo to the majors based on their defense.  I think they both have work to do in that areas. Their bats are ahead on their gloves IMO. Gunnar, Westburg, Ortiz and Mateo are a better fit defensively to begin 2024 IMO.   Mateo fits well as a UIF and possibly a backup CF.    So I am not that interested in Mateo's trade value at this point.   I am much more interested in Urias trade value.
    • So you think Elias when interviewed by JA just said “Oh trust me, we will figure it out?”   Or perhaps he was thoroughly prepared, presented his experience in detail and outlined his thoughts and plans and process to rebuild and beyond ? 
    • The full AL playoff field is set, but uncertainty in the AL West and second/third WC seeding mean that there are still four possible teams we might face. By tonight it'll be down to two.  While it's still a pretty open question— who would you most want our ALDS opponent to be?  It's an interesting question as I think all four teams are really at similar levels right now. 
    • I show Bradish needing 4-5 shutout innings to leap frog Sonny Gray's 2.79 ERA.    12 outs is 2.7948 which is about the worst round off to 2.79 there is. Unless the Red Sox accelerate golf course mode, I think 3 innings is about what he'll do today, but with nothing at stake in Game 162, I'm ready for the first time through the lineup to be over in 30-ish pitches, and then maybe they want him to do 40-50. We'll be fortunate if we can get one or two Bradish v. S. Gray October matchups to settle the competition for 2nd best year in the league.
    • Thinking of possible ways to get some of these Norfolk guys in the mix next year. I hope they sign Adley, Gunnar and some others long term, but my guess is the best we can hope for in the outfield is extending one of them - perhaps Mullins in center for the next 3-4 years.
