It's hardly a surprise, but Davey Johnson will return to the Washington Nationals as manager in 2012, but the team is just waiting until the end of the World Series to make the announcement, Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo told reporters on a conference call Wednesday.

"We're just waiting for an opportunity to make an announcement," Rizzo said, according to the Washington Post.

Rizzo said he and Johnson have talked about the coaching staff for next season and will finalize that after the World Series, though no major changes are expected.

The Nationals went 40-43 under Johnson last season, finishing third in the NL East. He took over after the bizarre exit of Jim Riggleman, who quit when he didn't get an extension.

They should have never let Jim Riggleman get away.
He was a fine manager and probably should have been paid more to stay there.
