Jim Riggleman Resigns, Thinks Many Players Would Like That Anyway

In the continuing drama that is the world of the Washington Nationals and the Jim Riggleman resignation, Riggleman blasted out some tasty quotables to reporters that Washington Times Nathan Fenno picked up on and preserved on Twitter.
