Johnson to be Named Nats’ Manager
Earlier this week, the Florida Marlins named 80 year old Jack McKeon to be their interim manager.
Now, it’s Washington’s turn to ask an older guy to take over.
Sources from espn.com say that 68-year old Davey Johnson will take over as the Nationals’ manager.
Johnson hasn’t managed in the big leagues in 11 years. His last managerial job was with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2000. Johnson has been working as a special assistant with the Nationals. He is expected to manage the club the rest of this season and in 2012.
