The Washington Nationals will hold a press conference at 11:30 am, carried live by MASN and ESPN 980, to discuss the managerial situation, where they will announce that Manny Acta has been fired and are expected to name bench coach Jim Riggleman as the interim manager.

We expect to hear from team Preseident Stan Kasten and perhaps "acting" General Manager Mike Rizzo.

I will reserve commentary until after the announcement.
