Bodley Assumes The Position

Continuing his whirlwind media tour, Rock Star-turned GM Jim Bowden gives an audience to the mouthpiece of Bud Selig, Hal Bodley in USA Today.

This was my favorite anecdote:
Place a call to Jim Bowden's Viera, Fla., office, and the voice answering is that of Omar Minaya, identifying himself as general manager of the Expos, asking that you please leave a message, etc., etc.

Life has been such a blur for the new GM of the Washington Nationals — that's what they'll be named soon — Bowden hasn't had time to change the answering machine message in his makeshift command post. There are more important issues. Minaya, of course, left to become GM of the New York Mets.
