After all the wrangling and waiting, the Nationals were sold to the Lerner family and questions shifted from ‘Who is the owner?’ to ‘Where are we headed?’
The man to answer that is Stan Kasten, the new team president who will take over in the next month.
Kasten served as president of three Atlanta franchises — the Braves, Hawks and Thrashers — at the same time. MLB and NBA executives speak of him as an innovator and laud his ability to build a solid organization.
I spoke to Kasten about the Nationals ownership in the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network, other broadcast-related issues and his vision of the Nats-Orioles rivalry going forward.
