Quote:
"My resignation is based upon my realization that my ability to properly represent the Washington Nationals has been compromised because of false allegations contained in the press," Bowden said in a statement. "I am disappointed by the media reports regarding investigations into any of my professional activities. There have been no charges made, and there has been no indication that parties have found any wrongdoing on my part.

"At the same time, while I have done nothing wrong, I place a greater value on the love, respect and best interests of my family, friends, the game of baseball -- that I've served lovingly and faithfully for close to 25 years -- and, the reputation and future of the Washington Nationals, which I'm proud to have been a part of since its inception in 2004."

This reeks of, "Either you resign and go out with some dignity or we can you."

The skimming of bonues of Latin American players is a huge problem in MLB. If it weren't for the steroid scandal still echoing through clubhouses, it would probably have a lot more attention on it.

Of course the whole problem would go away if Latin American players had to enter the draft.
