I caught an interview with Washington Times' writer Mark Zuckerman on the XM's MLB Homeplate radio show "Inside Pitch" with Jeff Joyce and Kevin Kennedy, and jotted down a few notes about the conversation:
Mark Zuckerman says:(paraphrasing, of course)
-- The entire organization is preoccupied with the recent scandal.
-- Doesn't think this is going away any time soon.
--There is a chance Jim Bowden loses his job.
-- The Nationals really need to change the perception of the team. Ownership taking a long look...Even if Bowden didn't do anything wrong...
-- Manny Acta? No insinuation of Acta's involvement in any of this, but there's a lot of pressure on everyone in the organization.
-- '09 Nationals? The team is healthy, which they were not in '08, a better offense with Dunn, Willingham added...w/out injuries should be a better team, at least doesn't think they'll lose 102 again.
