As expected, Nationals manager Davey Johnson will return to manage the team in 2013 in what will be his final season as a Major League skipper before returning to a consultant position with the team for the 2014 season.

Good news. be interesting to see if he actually does step back after the year.

And if he does, whether the Nats will promote from within or look elsewhere for a successor.

I get why you wouldn't want to be a full-time field manager in your 70s, and Davey Johnson's career has not been the career of a man who can't live off the field. But he has a borderline Hall of Fame resume, and he's clearly still good enough to build that resume.

Randy Knorr seems to be the next guy in line, then maybe AAA manager Beasley. Has Knorr been interviewed by the Blue Jays? I know he played there. I get the sense Davey likes teaching coaches as well as the players.

Nationals later announced that due to his age Davey will be shutdown at the start of September to keep him fresh for 2014.
