  • Davey Johnson new Nationals manager?

    From Fox Sports:

    Davey Johnson reportedly to be new Nationals skipper
    "For the Washington Senators, the worst time of the year is the baseball season." Roger Kahn

    "People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring." Rogers Hornsby.

    That would be a great hire! I'd love to see Johnson in the dugout again. It's been way too long!

      It's official-Davey Johnson will return to the bench for the first time in almost 11 years starting with tonight's game in Anaheim as the Nationals take on the Angels:

        I hope he still has the touch to keep the team winning. The added bonus is that he's right down the road from the team who hasn't had a winning record since he left in '97.

          Yeah. Great baseball move, great business move. Greats thinking on Washington's part. I missed Davey Johnson's era, though, and I'm eager to catch the skipper of the '86 Mets. There could be growing pains - a lot of managers lose their touch after years out of the game, but Davey's a smart guy who has the sabremetric pedigree to do some real damage. Here's looking forward to the immediate future of the Nats!

            Johnson predicts Nats can make the playoffs this year...

            I hope he's right but the hitting and relief pitching need to be more consistent...
