Nats' Kasten To Announce Resignation Prior To Thursday's Game Against Astros

Bill Ladson of MLB.com confirms that Nationals president Stan Kasten will resign his position effective at the end of the season. "The club will make an official announcement prior to Thursday's game against the Astros at Nationals Park," Ladson says. While that much is clear, plenty is still up in the air, as Ladson writes:

It was not known what Kasten will do after leaving the Nationals. There have been reports over the past few years that he would work for the Blue Jays or Major League Baseball, but he has denied those reports. Kasten was also a successful GM with the Atlanta Hawks of the NBA. It was also not known who will replace Kasten in Washington.
