Nats Fire Player Development Director Bobby Williams?

Posted by Dave Nichols | Saturday, September 05, 2009 | , | 1 comments »

According to the Patriot-News, buried at the bottom of this notebook is news that the Washington Nationals fired Bobby Williams, Player Development Director, last Friday after three years on the job.

Trying to confirm the news, but so far nothing official out of the organization. NFA said the article confirms what he had heard as well.

We'll publish confirmation when we hear it.

If it's true, this is the beginning of the purge coming for at least the internal structure of the organization. There are an awful lot of contracts for internal personnel that expire this off-season, and we can expect those contracts to not be renewed, as Jim Bowden-hired folks are transisitoned out and Mike Rizzo can name his own personnel.
