I am all for the hiring of Rob Dibble as the analyst on the Washington Nationals MASN telecasts. I am all for anything that creates any interest or buzz or potential for fun and games. Heck, I want them to hire the Sham-Wow guy to do play-by-play.

But if this is the direction they are going, then by all means add some more spice to the mix and sign Manny Ramirez. Dibble himself, according to reports in December, suggested the Nationals should sign Ramirez, baseball’s clown prince and one of its greatest hitters. He knows a good show when he sees it.


Manny and The Nasty Boy — the best show in baseball.


I will be on The Sports Reporters on ESPN 980 AM on Monday, Feb. 2, from 5 to 7 p.m.
