Washington Nationals owner Mark Lerner interviews with Thom Loverro of the Washington Times.
I can't imagine ever having an emotional letdown from owning the hometown major league baseball club — the national pastime team — in the nation's capital. No. There has been absolutely no emotional letdown.
It's hard for us to imagine being really satisfied until the team is more competitive on the field and until we are in the new ballpark and can offer the fan experience we've always imagined.
We're all looking forward to the opportunity to make some adjustments to the stadium in anticipation of this ownership's first full season at RFK.
I know that everyone — owners, players, sponsors, advertisers and media partners — shares a hope that a CBA will be reached quickly and amicably. We're all quite optimistic. I think we all learned from the last agreement — which was reached without work stoppage or even a threat of work stoppage — was beneficial to the game and certainly appreciated by the fans.
