What does Kasten's departure mean for the Nats?
Stan Kasten, the only president that the Washington Nationals have ever had, announced this afternoon that he was stepping down at the end of the season. Kasten will still hang on to his minority ownership stake in the team. (Kudos to Thomas Boswell of the Post, who actually opined yesterday that Kasten was leaving the team.)
