This comes after former manager Jim Riggleman suddenly resigned due to contract disputes on Thursday afternoon.

Kilgore writes in an article that Johnson "was in final negotiations Friday night and could take over Monday, when the Nationals begin a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels."

If true, many believe the Nationals would have successfully replaced one manager for a better manager as Johnson is well respected throughout the league and has experience coaching teams to the playoffs and even the World Series.
