It was announced today that Mike Rizzo will take control of the day-to-day operations of the Washington Nationals after the resignation of Jim Bowden. While Stan Kasten had announced earlier that he would be in charge until a replacement general manager could be found, he took a step back today by putting Rizzo in the lead spot as interim GM.
"We've had enough instability in the last couple of weeks. I like stability. I don't like interim titles, by nature, because they suggest instability. So I'd rather just keep things in place while we proceed-especially since we have our functions down pretty well."
