Conflicting reports on McLaren resignation

Having two managers resign within one week has to be some sort of record, right? While John McLaren is technically only an "acting" or "interim" manager, he's still at the helm of the Washington Nationals ... until Davey Johnson takes over Monday. Still, it was expected McLaren would be kept on as bench coach -- his role with the club since 2009 -- but instead he will likely resign from the job, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

Then again, MLB.com's Bill Ladson reports that McLaren is not leaving.

Johnson is expected to be announced the Nationals' new manager Monday, at which time it's been reported the Nationals will also reveal he's signed on through the 2012 season.

McLaren's resignation -- if it happens, which it might not -- would come less than a week after Jim Riggleman stepped down from the Nationals' managerial position. That resignation was quite shocking, considering the Nationals were playing as well as any other team in the majors at the time. Heading into Saturday, they had won 12 of their last 13 games. Riggleman felt disrespected by the organization due to salary and contract issues, so he stepped down. McLaren reportedly will resign due to loyalty to Riggleman and general frustration with the organization -- again, though, there's also a report he's sticking around.

Riggleman was 38-37 as the Nationals manager this season, while McLaren is 1-0.

First Riggleman, then McLaren?  Who's next, Bo Porter?  I hope not since I'd rather see Porter take over this club than Davey Johnson.

Report: McLaren resignation coming soon

According to a directive from the Commissioner's Office, a MLB team must consider minority candidates before hiring a new manager or key front office executives.

"If a club has an opening in any of these positions, the club owner must notify me personally," Commissioner Bud Selig wrote in the directive. "In addition, your list of candidates must be provided to me. I expect the list to include minority candidates whom you and your staff have identified."
