Video of the Day: Riggleman's press conference

Nov 13, 2009, 2:01 PM EDT

During yesterday’s press conference announcing him as the Nationals’ manager Jim Riggleman explained why the job is “the dream of a lifetime.” Also of note from the video is general manager Mike Rizzo explaining that he chose Riggleman in large part because they “got along very, very well” during the final three months of this season, which backs Bobby Valentine’s claim that Rizzo planned to hire Riggleman all along.

    I have known Jim Riggleman for a long time since the days with the Cardinals. He deserves to be the manager for the Nationals. He is a great person and has put his time in as a Major Leaguer. He will finally get the chance to manage his team from the beginning of spring training and into the season. I know he will do an outstanding job. It was a wise and smart choice for the Nationals instead of hiring Valentine. I wish you the best of luck for the upcoming season.
