God Bless You Please, Mr. Robinson


Frank Robinson out as manager of the Nats.

Well....God bless him for taking a dog job that nobody else wanted and trying to make something of it. Alas, Joltin' Joe has died and gone away.

On the other hand, if the Lerner Group is serious about building a new franchise stick by stick, this isn't really a surprising move.

Looks like RFK's ghost finally got his scalp.

Well, they gave him a really sweet send-off, not a dry eye in the house. And it was striking how all the Mets came over to shake his hand and hug him, too.

We saw some very nice baseball yesterday - too bad it was mostly played by the Mets...
