    Jim Riggleman abruptly resigns as manager after Thursday's win over Seattle

    Much as I follow the Nationals, I had no clue that there was trouble brewing...

    Unhappy with contract, Riggleman resigns

    What a shocker! Anyone have any insight?

    I was shocked how well Washington was playing so I assummed Riggleman was the toast of the town. I cant believe he quit.

    Riggleman has demonstrated that he is no Mensa candidate. He wanted the Nats to pick up his option year by the end of today or he was walking. Here is a 58 year old guy who is qualified for nothing else, who is making way into 6 figures, is easily replaced (no shortage of ex-managers who will job at this job), who has zero chance of finding anyone who will employ him at anything like that money and he quits because his feelings are hurt??
