Frank Robinson

Barry Svrluga of the Washington Post is reporting that Frank Robinson will not be back as manager of the Washington Nationals next season, marking the end of a 5-year run with the Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals. Robinson's one-year, $650,000 contract expires at the end of the season. As reported:

A discussion between the team's top officials and Robinson could happen as soon as today (Thursday), but it almost certainly will take place by Monday, the day after the 71-year-old manager's fifth season at the helm of the franchise concludes. It is unclear whether he will be offered another position within the organization.

Robinson has not yet met with General Manager Jim Bowden or President Stan Kasten regarding his future with the organization. Robinson was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1982 as a player, and has managed in MLB for 16 seasons.
