Davey Johnson was the last Orioles manager to lead the team to the ALCS, and he managed four other clubs, including most recently the Washington Nationals. He seemed to pick Baltimore over his most recent stop in an MLB Network Radio interview this morning. Johnson was asked about seeing baseball revived in Baltimore, and said it's “wonderful” to see. “I think the best fans in baseball are right around that Baltimore area,” Johnson said. “Now we're getting baseball fans in Washington, which has mostly been a football town, but I love the people in that area.

Questions and answers about Davey Johnson's resignation as Orioles manager:Why did Johnson quit?Johnson's relationship with Orioles owner Peter Angelos had deteriorated. Apparently not wanting to be a lame-duck manager in the last season of his contract in 1998, Johnson had asked Angelos for an extension or a buyout two weeks ago. Angelos had shown no inclination to grant either.What were the apparent main points of contention?Angelos was displeased that Johnson had raised the question of his status in July, saying he needed to reach the World Series to keep his job. Johnson's handling of a $10,500 fine to second baseman Roberto Alomar in July also bothered the owner.

Apparently the Washington Nationals are also pumped up about "Beast Mode" coming back to Mid-Atlantic. This from Amanda Comak of The Washington Times : [Nationals] manager Davey Johnson said they were discussing the Orioles waiver claim of Morse during Thursday night's game and the dugout buzzed with the possibility of the slugger returning to the D.C. area.

LOS ANGELES -- Get ready for the Los Angeles Daveys.Fox has changed everything else with the Dodgers, so why not the name of the team? Davey Johnson certainly would approve. If he had gotten the Detroit job, he might have crowed that the "D" on the uniform stood for you-know-who.Well, Johnson last night scored an even bigger coup, filling the chair that once belonged to Walter Alston and Tom Lasorda, landing one of the most prized jobs in sports.That's right, No. 15 is back, ready to bleed Dodger blue and turn his superiors gray, not necessarily in that order.

Hampton Thompson "Red" Davey Jr., a history and social science professor at St. Mary's College of Maryland, died Tuesday of lung cancer at his home in California, Md. He was 61. Dr. Davey had been on a leave of absence for about a year because of illness. In the early 1990s, Dr. Davey, a popular professor with an encyclopedic memory, helped transform St. Mary's from a "party school" to a college known for its academics, said Marc Apter, spokesman for the college. "Red was critical during the college's rise from a regular college known for being scholarly and fun to one that was notably scholarly," said Jane Margaret O'Brien, president of St. Mary's since 1996.

It was one of the most memorable recruiting trips Dick Davey has experienced at Santa Clara. In March 2001, he already had a letter of intent from Kyle Bailey but went on the road to get a firsthand update on the progress of the guard prospect. "I was in a restaurant, having breakfast the morning of his game," Davey said. "I look outside and see a moose. That was an interesting experience." The dean of West Coast Conference coaches, Davey is in his 13th season as head coach and 28th overall at Santa Clara, an hour south of San Francisco.

Just real lucky.That is how Santa Clara's Dick Davey feels about starting as head coach of the Broncos in 1992 with freshman Steve Nash as his designated floor leader.With Davey designing the plays and Nash executing the offense, Santa Clara has a 72-41 record the past four years and qualified three times for the NCAA tournament. Tomorrow in Tempe, Ariz., the Broncos (19-8) face Maryland in the opening round of the West Region."It was just real fortunate for us that he fell through the cracks," Davey said of the lanky 6-foot-3 Nash, now considered by pro scouts to be the best pure point guard in the country and a possible low lottery pick.

Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson knows plenty about power hitters. He played with guys like Frank Robinson. He managed Brady Anderson in 1996 when Anderson set a still-standing Orioles franchise record with 50 homers. He now manages Bryce Harper, who, at 20, may have the highest power potential in the game. As a player, Johnson hit 136 career homers, including 43 in 1973 with the Atlanta Braves. So what does he see going on with the Orioles' Chris Davis, who has 37 homers heading into the start of the second half tonight?

The final t wo games of a home-and-home series with the Washington Nationals this week mark Davey Johnson's final trip to Baltimore. And before the Orioles faced off with the Nationals in the first game of the series Wednesday, Johnson -- who has long been a key figure in Orioles history as a player and manager -- took the time to wax nostalgic about his time in Baltimore. “I always love coming to Baltimore,” said Johnson, who previously said this would be his final season as Nationals manager.

Davey Johnson says he won't shave until his team's bats heat up. This promises not to be a good look. He may want to re-think that decision. The Washington manager is 70 years old and the Nationals show no signs of coming out of their hitting slump after their 6-2 loss to the Orioles Monday. And old guys with heavy whiskers can end up looking like derelicts or nutty-professor types, which is not exactly what you want to see from the guy who...

The Orioles' improbable run to the postseason wasn't enough to earn Buck Showalter the American League Manager of the Year Award. Up until Tuesday evening's announcement on the MLB Network, the race between Showalter and Oakland A's manager Bob Melvin for the AL's top manager of 2012 seemed too close to call. Both were equally deserving and both led their teams to storybook seasons that captivated baseball. The award was decided by a mere couple of votes, Melvin beat Showalter in a vote of 28 AL market Baseball Writers' Association of America voters.

Sitting in the visitors' dugout, Davey Johnson looked out over the park that used to be home, took a deep breath and grinned. It had been 15 years, but Johnson was finally managing again in Camden Yards. "Feels good to be back," said Johnson, now the manager of the Washington Nationals, before Friday night's series opener against the Orioles. "Little different view from this angle," he added. Different view, same landmarks. There, in the dugout across the field, that's where Johnson watched his final game wearing an Orioles cap. Over the right field wall, that's where Tony Fernandez launched his series-clinching home run in the top of the 11th inning, breaking a scoreless tie for the Cleveland Indians in Game 6 of the 1997 American League Championship Series.

WASHINGTON - Once considered a key member of the Orioles' young rotation, right-hander Brad Bergesen will be pitching for Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday without a spot on the organization's 40-man roster. That's something he hasn't done in more than four years. "It's been an interesting process, something I've gone through for the first time, kind of the in-limbo phase," said Bergesen, who was taken off the 40-man roster Friday when the Orioles made room for Bill Hall . "There was some unknown, whether I'd be playing for another team … I was kind of on pins and needles.

Earl Weaver can't imagine Cal Ripken refusing to move to third. Frank Robinson wouldn't try to move Ripken from shortstop in the middle of a season. Jim Palmer sees nothing personal in manager Davey Johnson's desire to see Manny Alexander at shortstop.They were among a handful of ex-Orioles -- players and managers -- offering their perspective on the idea of Ripken moving to third base yesterday.It was Weaver who moved Ripken from third to shortstop in 1982, because of his "good instincts, good range, and an outstanding arm."

There is no Red Sox- or Cubs-style curse on the Orioles - nothing involving Babe Ruth, “No, No, Nanette” or a malodorous goat. At least not that I know of. But we all know the Orioles haven't won since 1997. That sure was an eventful season for the franchise. The O's went wire-to-wire, winning the AL East and advancing to the ALCS before falling short of the World Series. Manager Davey Johnson and owner Peter Angelos had a stunning baseball divorce after the season was over, and Johnson stepped down before completing his third and final contract season.

Davey Johnson hadn't owned a home in more than a decade. But soon after being hired by the Orioles in 1995, he defied baseball managers' conventional logic by buying - rather than renting - a ranch house on the north side of Loch Raven Reservoir. It was the sort of decision he would never make in a game - allowing his heart to triumph over his head - but Johnson was as smitten with the Orioles franchise from his playing days as he was with the Baltimore County property, which had a pool, a stream and plenty of rustic charm.
