Davey Johnson proved a quick turnaround is possible for a struggling sports franchise even in long-suffering city, largely starved for something to cheer about.
In his first full season as skipper, Johnson guided the Washington Nationals to an MLB best 98-64 record en route to D.C.’s first postseason berth since 1933. He earned National League Manger of the Year honors and a contract extension for his efforts.
So, if Johnson and the Nationals can do it, why can’t other area sports teams?
Assuming continued struggles are attributable to the men sitting at the top of the organizations, who needs to go?
