The Future Of Stan Kasten Without The Nationals

Stan Kasten is sure to have plenty of job opportunities once he departs from his role of Team President of the Washington Nationals after this season. Atlanta Braves Manager Bobby Cox thinks that the top position in the sport could be one of those opportunities.

Bud Selig is set to step down as the baseball Commissioner following the 2012 season, and according to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, Cox thinks Kasten would make for a competent replacement.

"I've never talked to him about that, but I think it would" appeal to Kasten, Cox said. "He's qualified to do that job, absolutely. He's a lawyer. He knows the game. He loves baseball more than anything. He knows the inner-workings of it. He'd be a solid choice, in my opinion."

Stan Kasten is only 57-years old and has stated that his resignation from the Nationals organization is not a retirement. It could be a step towards something much bigger.
