Nats GM position to remain vacant
The Nationals decided on Wednesday that the general manager’s position will remain vacant for the foreseeable future.
Team president Stan Kasten will remain the person in charge, but assistant general manager Mike Rizzo will have principle responsibilities when it comes to the Major League, Minor League and scouting operations. All team matters or inquiries will be directed to Rizzo with Kasten working closely with him.
The Nationals will continue to search for a general manager, but feel they don’t need to rush to find one. They feel they are in good hands with Rizzo.
Bob Boone will continue to be the assistant general manager, while Dana Brown will remain the scouting director.
