“I’m not worried too much about his running,” Manager Davey Johnson said. “I was more worried later in the game when he started tearing up a helmet.”

Multiple people in baseball, when asked about managerial changes in general, noted that organizations often choose someone who brings a contrasting personality and style to the job than his predecessor.
Johnson is laid back. He doesn’t hold team meetings, opting for private conversations. He prefers to let his actions speak, giving players their confidence boosts through putting them in the lineup, or letting them pitch out of a jam in the seventh inning, or using them in a tight spot in relief. He has few qualms about divulging his opinions to the media.
Through discussions with industry and team sources, four possible names emerged as possibilities for when the Nationals begin their managerial search in earnest: Arizona Diamondbacks third base coach Matt Williams, Nationals bench coach Randy Knorr, Nationals third base coach Trent Jewett and Houston Astros manager Bo Porter.
They all operate differently than Johnson. They are younger, and some have more outward fire than the 70-year-old Johnson often projects.
