They never did, it was a matter of going through the motions. What Frank calls *chemistry* someone else will call being sucked up to, or simply not questioning his moves. The players have learned its easier to just go through the motions, rather than say anything. I'm more than sure that there are more players on the Nats team that if asked *off the record* if they liked playing for Frank, there would be a noticeable pause before they gave you their answer. They all respect him as the player he once was, but as a manager, that's a whole different ball of wax...

Frank Robinson didn't finish tied for dead last with Buck Showalter as the least liked manager in baseball because most of the 450 players polled didn't know him... think about it...
