After firing special assistant Jose Rijo three days ago in his connection with the Esmailyn Gonzalez scandal, ESPN.com reports that Jim Bowden has resigned as General Manager of the Washington Nationals. While claiming his innocence regarding the dealings with foreign prospects, Bowden felt that he has become a "distraction", and his "ability to properly represent the Washington Nationals has been compromised because of false allegations contained in the press."
