Washington Nationals General Manager Jim Bowden Resigned this morning.

His replacement has not been named.

You can read Bowden's statement, as well as the statement from Nationals President Stan Kasten.

Now, back to spring training.....

    How do you think this impacts the chances of Ryan Zimmerman signing a long term deal before the season opener?

    i don't think it affects it at all honestly. i really think both sides want to see what happenes this year.

    if Zim has a monster year, he can demand more than Markakis/Pedroia money, and if he is just "pretty good", well, the Nats will get their guy for a few million less.

    both sides think they can still "win" this.
