Mr. Larkin, You can kiss my ass

Article from the Washington Post.

 

Larkin Hopes to Stay
<!-- BREAK -->

Nationals front-office assistant Barry Larkin, who has been with the organization since 2005, is in town this weekend to discuss his future with the club. With his contract due to expire at year's end, Larkin is hoping for some answers about what's next.

Said Larkin, a shortstop for 19 years with Cincinnati: "My e-mail to [General Manager] Jim [Bowden] when I was coming here: I want to talk to you about the future and see what's on your mind, what's on the Lerners' minds. Kind of, 'What is the plan and what are we going to do forward? Or, am I part of We?' "

Since joining Washington, Larkin has relished a loosely defined role heavy on freedom and variety. He's scouted, mentored players (including Ryan Zimmerman), and traveled to Italy and China. This much Larkin knows: He'd like to remain with Washington. He feels no need to return to the Cincinnati organization, and has not been contacted by the Reds. And, he never wants to be a general manager. ("That is ridiculous: 24 hours a day, seven days a week," Larkin said. "And I don't want any of that.")

"I've done all of the things that Jim promised me I would get an opportunity to do," Larkin said. "And it's been absolutely great. It's been absolutely educational. I've been exposed to a lot of things."

I hope you do stay Barry, you are full of whines and bitching and couldn't even stop your whining to appreciate a moment where Cincinnati was in your gratitude.
