Chris, you miss the point. I'm a cheap bastard and I don't care what they think. And for your information I'm considering suing blogs for using my teams proprietary information....just so you know.

Chris,I back after the draft you educated me on the Aug 15th deadline and how you would advocated for patience and that you would be taking the high road on the Lerners, saying you would be taking them at their word until then.....did you have a change of mind?Seriously, this is an issue about ownership many people have been trying to push to the top without much success. If this season is not about wins but about finding out what we have here.....much more important that finding out that Nook is not a MLB Centerfielder (who knew?) is finding out about Lerner Group ownership, are they talk or action? WP and Barry seem so willing to just take them at their word not actions when it comes to spending our money. As I recall Forbes had them making $20 million profit last year before the big parole cuts….

The LERNERS are cheap, but lets all hope that that changes when we get n the new park....

Thank you Ted and jayb. It would be nice if we understood the economics of the Nationals; the debits, the credits and how they stack up. But in this age of television revenues, I would guess that building a system that operates effectively--produces contending teams--on the given economic resources is more important than whether Josh Smoker signs now or in three weeks.

I'm waiting until August 16th b/f I get ticked off over Smoker. McGreary has always been questionable, so I'm will to let that slide (assuming it wasn't just about the money).When is $9M only $9M or when is it the start of a trend? Who can trust the DC gov't and stadium commission? Too many years in DC gives me the concern that this isn't just $9M, it's the precedent.

Bitter rantings by a sometimes-analytical fanboy who loves the Washington Nationals, even though you probably can't tell 3/4 of the time.
