Davey has to be in the conversation with Bochy imho. Noone expected the Nationals to do last year what they did. Johnson deciding to bring Harper up when he did despite a ton of criticism, getting maximum value from retreads like Ankiel, sticking with Desmond until he became an all star and then sitting Strasburg are all representative of his long career. Also has a ring. Four time reviver of moribund franchises including Mets, O's, Nats and....who else was it...oh yeah, us. And we didn't treat him well. Had only one losing season in his entire managerial career (Dodgers).
And, really interesting, this just discovered link to Branch Rickey. Very cool.
BTW, way too early to form any view and the numbers in Toronto weren't so good but have to like how John Farrell has been doing out of the gate in Boston with a franchise that was on the ropes in a big way.
