Davey Johnson Almost Certain To Be Named Washington Nationals Manager In Conference Call Monday

Finally, it looks like the Washington Nationals will be officially naming Davey Johnson as their manager for 2012. The worst-kept secret will almost certainly be revealed on Monday in a conference call, according to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post.

The news has long been expected, but the Nationals have not announced it because teams are strongly urged not to make announcements during the World Series. Now that the World Series is over, the Nationals will be able to officially announce Johnson as their manager. The only question is whether it will only be for 2012 or whether it will be for longer.

Johnson, 68, managed the Nationals to a 40-43 record after taking over when Jim Riggleman quit at midseason. The team finished with an 80-81 record overall last season.
