Felger & Mazz: Mazz On Riggleman Resignation, ‘It’s A Completely Selfish, Insane Act’
When he wasn’t granted an extension for the 2012 season, Washington National manager Jim Riggleman decided to resign. Riggleman looked at the Nationals recent successful run as the time to ask for the extension. The front office wouldn’t talk extension at the time, Riggleman walked.
Who’s to blame for Riggleman leaving? The front office or Riggleman? Is this a selfish act by Riggleman?
How does Riggleman compare to players that have shut it down on their teams? How will this move affect the performance of the Nationals?
How should the media treat Riggleman?
