Hirings & Firings: Matt Williams, MGR, Washington Nationals

It appears that the Washington Nationals will select Matt Williams to succeed Davey Johnson, John McLaren, Jim Riggleman, Manny Acta, and Frank Robinson as their 6th Manager since the Montreal Expos moved to the nation's capital in 2005. 

Matt Williams will arrive in D.C. having served the past four years as the Arizona Diamondbacks' Base Coach (2010-2013), and where he also ended his 17-year playing career 10 years ago (1998-2003) as an original Diamondbacks player.

An interesting fact is that Williams' grandfather, Bert Griffith, played a few games for the Washington Nationals during the year they last won a World Series in 1924.
