Jim Bowden is job-hunting, and it's not ESPN's Cold Pizza. J.B. has permission from the Nats to talk to the Arizona Diamondbacks about their G.M. vacancy. Clearly Bodes is anxious to be reunited with his all-time favorite pitcher, Claudio Vargas. It has also come to my attention that the D-Backs might have a vacancy at SS next season, with Royce Clayton being a free agent. Might I suggest a Bowden-Guzman package deal?
J.B. might also be a candidate for G.M. jobs in Tampa Bay and Philadelphia. Please, oh please let him go to the Phillies. I'll even throw in Kenny Kelly to make it happen.
The Nats hitters are making some strides in the Arizona Fall League. Here's a look at their stats:
- Brendan Harris: .542 avg/.586 OBP/1.503 OPS/1 HR/4 RBI
- Larry Broadway: .370 avg/.500 OBP/1.056 OPS/1 HR/4 RBI
- Tony Blanco: .286 avg/.310 OBP/.917 OPS/2 HR/3 RBI
