Mike Rizzo wins Executive of the Year award, might be having the best five weeks ever

Nationals’ president of baseball operations and general manager Mike Rizzo was named Baseball America’s Executive of the Year on Tuesday, an exceptional accomplishment. It was the 57-year-old’s first time winning the award.

But compared to the past five weeks, this accomplishment seems to take a back seat.

Over the past month and some change, Rizzo’s Nationals won the World Series, had a championship parade and visited the White House just days after. Following the World Series, Rizzo got married in Jamaica.

When he spoke with reporters prior to the unveiling of the Nationals’ World Series documentary on Tuesday, he said: “I’ve been drunk for about a month.”

So, who’s been having the five worse weeks of their life lately?
