The Baseball Writers Association of America announced Tuesday that Matt Williams won the 2014 National League Manager of the Year award.
The Nationals flamed out in the NLDS against the Giants, but this is a regular season award so it's no surprise Williams won after guiding his club to 96 wins in the regular season. He received 18 of 30 first-place votes, with Clint Hurdle finishing runner-up and Bruce Bochy coming in third. Nov 11 - 6:26 PM

The Baseball Writers Association of America announced Tuesday that Bruce Bochy, Clint Hurdle and Matt Williams are finalists for the National League Manager of the Year award.

Bochy won his third World Series title in the last five years, but postseason results are considered by voters. Williams' Nationals lost in the NLDS, but they won 96 games in the regular season and that alone probably makes the first-year skipper the favorite here. The winner will be announced next Tuesday.
Nov 4 - 6:20 PM

The Nationals announced Friday that they will hire Mark Weidemaier to serve as an advance coach, focused solely on defensive alignments.

Weidemaier will be in uniform and in the dugout, and will act as sort of a liaison between the coaching staff and the advance scouts and video scouts. With the noticeable change in philosophy and proven effectiveness of over-shifting and radical defensive alignments, it's very encouraging to see a forward-thinking organization create this new position. Don't be surprised when many other organizations follow suit in the coming years.
