Why was General in Chief US Grant concerned about the Confederate raid by General Jubal Early?

There seems to be a disparity of opinions concerning US Grant and his confidence in General Hunt to handle the raiding force of General Jubal Early and then later, his apparent concern that the commanders facing off against Early less then qualified in handling the task of removing Early's threat upon Washington DC. As Early approached Washington, Grant learned that Union General George Sigel would attempt to stop Early. General Sigel had a record of consistent losses in the war and Grant wanted Sigel to be relieved of duty there.
