With general manager Mike Rizzo no longer sporting an "interim" ahead of his title, changes have started coming to the Nationals organization. On Saturday, the Nationals fired farm director Bobby Williams and minor league hitting coordinator Ralph Dickenson.
Williams spent three years as the Nats’ farm director, the same length as Dickenson’s tenure. Former GM Jim Bowden had hired both men, making it absolutely no surprise that both were let go. However, former Reds manager Bob Boone, who came with Bowden to the Nats, remains as the assistant GM/vice president of player development.
With the seasons over for all their affiliates, the Nationals’ minor league teams finished with a .501 cumulative winning percentage at 380-378, the second straight winning season in the organization.
