The New York Times’ prize-winning sports columnists, Michael Lewis and Dan Patrick, have a new job, and it’s with the Washington Post.

    Both Lewis and Patrick are in the midst of their first major sports column stints, and they have already found the most lucrative assignments yet.

    As part of their new roles, the columnists will write the daily column, “Inside the Wizards’ New GM,” which will be published weekly, as it has been for more than a year.

    In the new column, Lewis and his colleague Patrick will report on the team’s front office, roster, personnel and coaching decisions.

    Lewis will write about the team as a whole, and Patrick will write specifically about the coaching staff, and the Wizards are expected to move quickly on a few important pieces.

    For the Washington Nationals, that includes the team leader, Bryce Harper, who is coming off a season that was marred by injuries and was criticized by some for his lack of discipline.

    Lewis and Pierre will also cover the Nationals’ minor league affiliates in the hopes of helping the team stay ahead of the pack when it comes to the NL East.

    The Washington Post is currently a divisional-leading 14-5.
