John Farrell interviews for Nationals manager job

John Farrell is a man in demand in the weeks after his firing as Red Sox manager.

The Washington Nationals interviewed Farrell on Friday for their managerial opening, according to Ken Rosenthal of TheAthletic.com just days after Farrell interviewed for the Philadelphia Phillies' vacancy. 

Chicago Cubs bench coach Dave Martinez is the front-runner for the Nats job. 

Washington fired Dusty Baker after a 97-win season and Division Series loss to the Cubs. Baker, like Farrell, led his team to back-to-back division titles and first-round playoff exits before he was let go.
