Interim Washington Nationals manager Jim Riggleman officially became the team's permanent manager Thursday after what general manager Mike Rizzo called "a four-month interview." Promoted from bench coach to interim manager midway through last season, the Rockville-raised Riggleman took a team that was 26-61 (a .299 winning percentage) and guided it to a 33-42 (.440) finish. "You can know about people, and hear what you hear about people, but watching him work on a day-to-day basis, I knew we had something here that could be a long-term answer for where we're trying to be," Rizzo said.
