Stan Kasten Reads Blogs

Not necessarily this blog, but still, our confirmed list of blog readers now includes Bobby Boswell's mother, the google-conscious Ted Leonsis and the Nats' well-coiffed team Prez. This was from his online chat this AM (and good work to our Live Online producers for getting this one lined up.)

Crystal City, Va.: Have you seen any of the Nationals blogs out there? There seems to be an abundance of folks out there paying close attention to what is going on with the Nats.

Stan Kasten: I hate to admit that YES, I read the blogs. [Edit: why do you hate to admit it? It's the future, brother. Soon enough, you'll be live blogging from the winter meetings.] And yes, I listen to talk radio. [Edit: Ok, feel free to apologize for that one.] I feel it's a part of my job to have some sense of what SOME people are out there saying. It's important, though, not to take either the compliments or criticism too seriously. But I agree that it's very interesting to see how much is being said and written. There's no question there's a lot of interest in the DC area for the Nats, and if we do our job right we're going to have a great following.

Seriously, cheers to Esskay for not being out of touch, and for writing things like this: "I think that's about all I have time for today. Apparently, I've got to go hire a manager or something." He definitely has a future in blogging. Nats web traffic would go through the roof.

Esskay... that's pretty good. Took me a second to get it. But since that brand is more associated with the Orioles, I keep thinking they should cut a deal with Hebrew National to be the official hot dog.

My wife and I share season tickets with a few other couples and we were all very upset to hear that Tom Paciorek had been let go. We thought he was the best of ANY of the broadcasters--radio or TV--and will be much less interested in the broadcasts without Paciorek. PLEASE RECONSIDER this ill-advised decision. I think he would come back if asked. Do it for the fans.
Thank you.
