Stan Kasten takes down Jim Bowden, again
Because no Nats news story can yet reach its natural conclusion without a comment from Jim Bowden, I present today's Internet Twitter war between the former GM and his former boss.
"E.Dukes was given opportunities most people dream about. He was given support and understanding at high levels and still failed. Sad."
(Because failure to take advantage of dream-worthy sports opportunities should never be tolerated. Clearly.)
And then this:
After latest incident, credit Nats for making the right decision. They told him zero tolerance and followed their word.
So the natural question was, latest incident, huh? Bowden is now a media member; when he writes of a "latest incident," you assume he has actual information with which to explain said claim. But before any of that came could come out, the Nats replied, both with Mike Rizzo's comments and, far juicier, with Stan Kasten via the team's official Twitter account.
Stan Kasten: "I know of no 'incident' as it pertains to Elijah Dukes and his unconditional release today."
And then this:
Stan Kasten continued: "People who are saying this don't know what they're talking about."
And, as he is wont to do, Bowden deleted his original Tweets, leaving his page blank as the name next to the number 9 on Jim Riggleman's lineup card. My own preference here would be a Segway race down the right field line to determine who's right. Barring that, maybe Bowden could interview Kasten on the radio again. That's always fun.
