Nats de facto general manager Mike Rizzo just made a deal giving an unproven talent the biggest contract a player in his position has ever been given in the history of his sport.
In other words, a deal just like those Redskins de facto GM Vinny Cerrato makes every offseason.
And now it looks like Rizzo’s about to be kicked out of his job.
If it were Cerrato who was getting knocked off, Redskins fans would be celebrating his departure the way Italians rallied around Mussolini’s swinging carcass.
But in Rizzo’s case, Nats followers are upset.
Will that be enough to save his job?
