Washington Nationals Fire Matt Williams

Matt Williams won NL Manager of the Year award after last season. After the close of this season, he looks for a new managing job.

The Washington Nationals fired Williams on Monday.

The dismissal comes a week after the team ended closer Jonathan Papelbon’s season for choking the club’s star player Bryce Harper in the dugout and the day after Washington ended a disappointing season without a postseason.

A World Series contender in the preseason, the Nationals finished seven games behind the New York Mets in the NL East. Williams reportedly lost the locker room and he definitely lost the fans, who recently booed him at a postgame press conference.


Like the first year of Williams’ managerial tenure, the club finished the season with a winning record. And the Nationals showed signs of their potential this season. Bryce Harper played at an MVP level and Max Scherzer threw two no-hitters. But such moments of brilliance only highlighted the disappointment of a season.
