07:21 AM ET 10.22 | A Monday report had Washington third base coach Trent Jewett becoming the fourth known candidate to interview for the Nationals' opening. [The] Nationals will continue their close-to-the-vest process this week, sorting through a list of interviewees. ... Despite interest in him from within the clubhouse and plenty of speculation elsewhere, Orioles Hall of Famer Cal Ripken becoming an actual candidate for the job appears to be unrealistic, according to a person close to the situation. Ripken has said he is more curious than ever about a return to the majors, and Washington's location made the Nationals a logical potential fit. Things could change, but the Nationals probably won't wait until long after the World Series ends to make a hire and they have not reached out to Ripken about their managerial opening.

No Dusty, No Cal. Nats are already two for two this off-season.

Why does this President Lincoln person always wants to be the first to comment on everything?
