I don't exactly know what he did to impress them last season, but I guess there isn't much one can do with a team like the Nationals...

It's not really going to matter who's managing that team until they get some actual talent.

I'm sure they'll keep hiring and firing managers as a solution until then.

I think it is a perfect match. A mediocre to sub-par (.440 as a manager) skipper on a low to no talent team that might not be a consistent winner in a Municipal League. Besides, he has plenty of experience managing crappy teams. Each team has to have manager, they probably got him cheap. I bet that a large part of his compensation includes a couple of hot dogs, a beer, and a clean uniform for each game.

I'm guessing that Valentine took a look and said, nay. They need to draft Harper and have Strasburg fulfill his promise. Then somebody would think about managing them.
