Jim Bowden may be walking down the Charles River some time soon on his way to Fenway Park. The Post reports that Bowden will meet with the Red Sox to discuss their vacant GM position. We hope that his interview goes well and that the Red Sox hire him. We hope that Major League Baseball the next day announces the new owners of the Nationals. We hope that the new owners then pick a new GM the next day, who immediately starts building a premier franchise.
What's the chance of all this working out? Not great. Bowden probably won't get the Sox job, and the new owners (whenever they're chosen) probably won't make a GM change so quickly.
Whatever. Let's at least get to the point where a GM--even if it's Bowden--has a mandate to do something real because the Nationals have a lot of money to spend and a lot of needs to fill. In other words, let's get an owner in here real quick.
