Is it possible that the Giants are so threatened by the Nationals that they needed to use Jim Riggleman's expertise and knowledge of the club to gain a competitive balance? Is the team just that good? Probably not. But I have to admit, I was a little surprised that Riggleman was able to find a second job at all, let alone this quickly.
