That's right, it's our old friend Tony LaCava:
The Nationals, according to multiple industry sources, are strongly considering firing general manager Jim Bowden and replacing him with Blue Jays assistant GM Tony LaCava.
Bowden has been implicated in a bonus skimming scandal in the Dominican Republic and is reportedly being investigated by the FBI. Jose Rijo, the former major-league pitcher and a special assistant to Bowden, has taken a leave of absence in wake of the allegations.
I remember how many of us were surprised and even initially disappointed when LaCava was passed over and the M's job was instead given to Zduriencik. ("Who? This old-school guy? BAH!") Because the Nationals are the world's most cursed franchise, this now means that -- assuming this all comes to pass -- LaCava will turn out to be an absolute screw-up, and the M's will have narrowly escaped disaster by snagging GMZ.
I've been telling myself this all season long: at least ONE of my teams is turning things around.
