The Washington Post

The former Nationals manager returns to the position he held before he left for Washington.

A sincere thanks from Chelsea Janes and me for reading all season.

Rizzo: "There's not one single incident was the tipping point of making a decision with Matt Williams."

Matt Williams made thousands of correct decisions, but these left many scratching their heads.

"I personally feel that it is my job to be a calming force as opposed to a disruptive one," Williams said Saturday.

The stories detailed his managing style, pitching decisions, lack of communication and disagreements with players.

A pair of suspensions will keep the closer sidelined for the remainder of the season.

Washington faces a number of questions now, and the answers may not become clear for some time.

Matt Williams said he didn't know the severity of the fight between Bryce Harper and Jonathan Papelbon until he saw video later.

"We’re all still learning every day. Once you think you’ve got it all figured out, it’s a constant learning experience for all of us, including me."
