Nationals Exercise Option On Davey Johnson

The Nationals announced today they've exercised Davey Johnson's managerial option for 2012.  GM Mike Rizzo said in a statement:

After a series of discussions, it became obvious that the Nationals would be best served if Davey Johnson would continue as manager.  Davey’s remarkable connection to the clubhouse and D.C. community during the season’s final three months was well received. His baseball acumen coupled with a proper off-season of planning, including a full regiment of Spring Training, should put our players in a position to succeed in 2012.

Johnson assumed the Nationals' manager job on June 27th, shortly after Jim Riggleman resigned.  Johnson, a former infielder, has managed 15 years in the Majors for the Mets, Reds, Orioles, Dodgers, and Nationals.  He won the World Series in 1986 and Manager of the Year in '97.
