FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
THURSDAY: Dan Patrick returns
THURSDAY: Frank Vogel

Former Washington Nationals manager Jim Riggleman joined the show to talk about why he left the team and what’s next.

Riggleman talked about how he reached his final decision to quit. “It wasn’t a plan,” Riggleman said. “It was really just something that was building. It’s kind of a lose-lose situation. I wish I was there managing the ballclub. At the same time I don’t want to be there under those circumstances. … It wasn’t a spontaneous, knee-jerk reactions. It was something I thought about.”

Riggleman maintains it was the right decision for him. He said everyone has a right to question his decision because it’s a public job. But he did what he thought he had to do.

Riggleman said that all he wanted to do was talk to the team. He was invested completely in the team. He wanted to find out if the team was invested in him.

Riggleman said that he wasn’t sure he’d be in the right frame of mind to lead the ballclub with his issues over his contract looming over his head.

Riggleman said he’s heading out to San Francisco on Thursday to meet with Brian Sabean and Bruce Bochy. He said that he is interested in working with them during the season and then see what happens after the season.
