Sources: Nationals never offered Major League position to Backman

Wally Backman, now a Minor League manager with the Mets, was never offered a Major League position with the Nationals, according to three sources.

A report from the New York Post indicated that Backman was thinking about leaving the Mets and joining the Nationals as a third-base coach.

One source said the Nationals never had any discussions with Backman, who played for manager Davey Johnson when both were with the Mets in the 1980s.
