Washington Post: Boswell: Wanted: An Owner

“That’s right, you too can be the proud owner
Of the quality goes in before the name goes on”...as Boswell waits.

For 33 years, Washington waited without a team. Then, once the city got back a club, the identity of its new owner has been held in limbo for many months longer than expected. That delay has caused damage to grass roots support. However, that can be reversed in a blink. Baseball need to remember what RFK looked like last summer with the park full and the stands bouncing.

After a winter of exasperating angst, for the team’s players as well as its fans, there is one—and only one—instant remedy.

Name an owner. And name him fast.
