Jim Riggleman Resigned. He's a Man of His Word. And Gangster.

Jim Riggleman, coach of the surprisingly-hot Washington Nationals (won 11 of 12!), resigned this afternoon in the coolest way possible: He told his general manager, Mike Rizzo, that if his contract issue wasn’t resolved today, he was resigning after the game.
