Diamondbacks_Matt_Williams_2013Washington has interviewed a bunch of candidates–and chosen not to interview Dusty Baker and Cal Ripken Jr.–and Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports that Diamondbacks third base coach Matt Williams is the front-runner to replace Davey Johnson as Nationals manager.

According to Ladson if the Nationals hire Williams as manager they’re hoping that Johnson’s old bench coach, Randy Knorr, will stick around in the same role after interviewing for the head gig himself.
