I listen to MLB radio in my car on XM fairly frequently. About 15 minutes ago Jim Bowden was talking with Barry Svrluga about the three-part series (on the Nats) he recently ran in the Wash. Post. They were discussing Williams’ firing and Bowden asked if he thought the Nats could have finished the season better if Williams had been fired in July instead of now. Svrluga said absolutely they would have had a much better chance of possibly giving the Mets a good fight! Bowden concurred on that. Interesting, coming from two guys who know the Nats VERY WELL.
