Well, the search is over. Similar to the hunt for a new GM in Washington, the Nationals have simply dropped the "Interim" title from the person they had. Today, the Washington Nationals announced that Jim Riggleman would keep the job he took over mid-way though last season. Terms of the deal are under wraps currently, but a Riggo is back with a Washington team.
Riggleman totes a managerial career that spans 4 teams, with an over all record of 555-694 (.444), and one play off appearance with the 1998 Chicago Cubs. Named Nationals Bench Coach at the beginning of last season, Riggleman took over for a 26-61 (.299) Manny Acta and led the Nats on a 33-42 (.440) through the stretch.
