Pat Listach out of running for Milwaukee Brewers manager

Nationals third base coach Pat Listach has been informed he will not be offered the vacant manager's job for the Milwaukee Brewers. Listach interviewed in Milwaukee last week, but General Manager Bob Melvin told Listach over the weekend that the team had whittled down a list of candidates to four, and he was not one of them.

"I thought it went well," Listach said. "I was grateful they flew me in there. I'm glad I had chance to go through it. I'm thankful for the opportunity. I look forward to the next chance I have."

Listach, it appears, will remain apart of the Nationals coaching staff for next season. Listach is close with new Cubs Manager Mike Quade, but Quade and Listach have not spoken about a position for next year and Listach said he hasn't even thought about a new job.

Listach is currently in Puerto Rico managing in a winter league. Nationals prospects Danny Espinosa and Chris Marrero are two of the six Nationals players on his team.

Adam, where is Jesus Flores? If he's completely healthy, is he playing in one of the winter leagues to get some games under his belt? If not, why not?

The Nationals previously announced that all their coaches would be back next year, did they not? So they would have to grant permission for Listach to become one of Quade's coaches, would they not? If indeed it's even allowed for the Cubs to talk with someone under contract to another club for the same job. I don't think it is, either. Becoming a manager is a step up, so they couldn't block that. But becoming a coach is a lateral step. Listach closed the door on doing that for another club when he agreed to coach the Nats in 2011.

I am glad to know that our coaches might actually be respected enough to be considered. Let's give them the chance to move up, and welcome them back warmly if it doesn't work. Of course, if a better player or coach is ever available, get them and dismiss someone else in cold blood. Enough already.

Guess you've never seen the human stop sign in action at 3B; of course, if a man could be thrown out by 10 feet it was a sure go. Don't even bring up the sleeping 1B coach who sends safe runners to the dugout (I still don't believe what I saw on April 23). And now we have Jim "72 wins is my ambition" Riggeleman back. And we get a sandwich pick for Dunn (assuming somebody remembers to offer arbitration). Things are really looking up! Why doesn't the management of this team want to win?

to grclarkdc1-----you may just be the dullest knife in the drawer. Your comments are south of moronic and show zero knowledge of the game of baseball. As for Dunn all of baseball know's how many times trades were submitted for approval but not allowed by Kasten. We now will receive a draft pick and have the money to spend elsewhere that is now not going to Dunn. I am fine with that.
