In all seriousness you guys are missing the one true selection for manager of the Washington Nationals in 2006:
A guy named FRANK HOWARD.
Star players don't always make good managers and to prove my point, take a look at Frank Robinson.
Things related to the Senators should remain in the past. We're talking about the Nationals, not the Senators. Leave Frank Howard in DC's history and record books, besides, I don't want another (or different) 70 year old managing. Jimmy Williams is about as old as the maximum old I want to see running the team...
yeah, I agree.
All respect to Hondo who was a great player, but it would be diifferent if he'd been managing in the majors for the past decade or so like Alou or McKeon. I really don't think 70 is the age to begin your MLB managing career.
