Keeping the "fun" in dysfunctional

The Washington Nationals officially named Dusty Baker as their new manager today.

Baker, a three-time manager of the year, gives the Nationals a proven winner who has the experience to handle a clubhouse better than Matt Williams did this season.

But he wasn’t the Nationals’ first choice – they wanted Bud Black and actually offered him the job first. But according to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, they made him an insultingly low offer and he turned it down. Oops.

I guess when you know you’ve already got millions tied up in a closer you’re going to have to trade for whatever you can get or release, you try to economize where you can…or maybe the folks in charge in D.C. really are this clueless.
