The Nationals have named Bobby Henley as their new third base coach, replacing the void left by Trent Jewett who joined the Mariners earlier this month.
Jewett started as a major league coach for the Nationals, became their first base coach on July 1, 2011, and spent last season as their third base coach.
Nats GM Mike Rizzo does not expect to run the decision by his players. What he might find if he asked, though, is a group that already has a pretty good idea of who they'd like to lead them.
Four names have emerged as possibilities to replace the manager. They all operate differently than Johnson. They are younger, and some have more outward fire than the 70-year-old Johnson often projects.
The Washington Nationals finalized their coaching staff for the 2012 season Thursday evening when they promoted Triple-A manager Randy Knorr to the major league coaching staff as the bench coach for manager Davey Johnson.
Jim Riggleman was the first domino on the Washington Nationals coaching staff to fall when he decided to leave the team after last Thursday's game. Bench coach John McLaren was next after winning his only series as interim manager. On Friday, first base coach Dan Radison became the final domino as he was let go from the team.
