Why would ALR want to play for Buck? Buck just isn't fun like Davey. In NY and AZ, he lost the clubhouse after a couple years, got fired and watched Joe Torre and Bob Brindley take his teams to WS championships. Maybe he's stopped assigning seats on the team bus and planes, but his career has been the drill instructor who comes in, insists on fundamentals, but wears out his welcome. Has he really changed that much?

flynnie, if they make a better offer and Os do need a 1B in my opinion, I don't see why he would turn it down.

If he signs with the Nats he only gets one year of Davey, and then who knows after that. If he signs a three year deal elsewhere, he knows there's a good chance he's going to outlast whatever manager is currently there.

Why did Werth sign with the Nats when he'd have to play for Riggleman? Because he knew that Riggleman would be gone long before he was.
