Nationals To Hire Matt Williams, Wally Still Remains
Sources: #Nationals plan to hire Matt Williams as manager with goal of keeping Randy Knorr as bench coach. Timing of announcement not known.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) October 25, 2013
I used to love to watch Matt Williams play. He had a 17 year career and a 10 year peak of .278 .326 .508 .834 with 300 HR while playing in my opinion (no stats on this one) an excellent 3B. In 2009 the Dbacks hired him as a base coach and he has been with them since.
I am not making this into a Backman post, only to point out that the chances of losing him as our AAA manager just got dramatically slimmer.
