Steve Buttry has been posting a series of articles at The Buttry Diary offering advice to top editors. All are instructive, but the latest, on dealing firmly with staff problems , is particularly valuable. If you are a manager at any level, you would do well to examine how he lays out various situations and how he suggests dealing with them. I append a few comments of my own. In journalism, most managers, regrettably, fall into two categories: bullies and cowards. This I have seen at two newspapers myself, and have heard reports from colleagues at scores of others.

Davey Johnson, a former Orioles manager and player, will become the next manager of the Washington Nationals and will manage them at least through the 2011 season, general manager Mike Rizzo said on the national broadcast of Saturday's game against the Chicago White Sox. The move completes a surreal two days by placing one of the most accomplished managers of this generation at the helm of baseball's hottest team. Rizzo said the completion of Johnson's contract amounted to "dotting the i's and crossing the t's. " Rizzo also said Johnson will travel with the Nationals to Anaheim, Calif., where he will manage his first game Monday.

Earl Weaver penned his own epitaph. “On my tombstone just write, 'The sorest loser that ever lived,' “ he once said. Weaver, the Orioles' chain-smoking, umpire-baiting, tomato-growing manager who led the team to four American League pennants and the 1970 world championship in his 17 years here, died late Friday night while on a baseball-themed cruise. The Orioles confirmed his death Saturday morning but did not release a cause. The Hall of Famer, who lived in Pembroke Pines, Fla., was 82. “Earl Weaver stands alone as the greatest manager in the history of the Orioles organization and one of the greatest in the history of baseball,” Orioles owner Peter Angelos said in a statement.

As a good friend of Bishop Robinson, I read with interest Fred Rasmussen 's obituary of the former Baltimore City police chief ( "Bishop Lee Robinson Sr., city's first black police commissioner, dies at 86," Jan. 6). There was another part of Bishop's career that was omitted. For approximately 10 years, from the time he served as secretary of the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services until his 70th birthday, we were privileged to have him serve as a director of Mercantile Bankshares Corp.

NEW YORK - When the Yankee Stadium crowd began chanting New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's name after his final at-bat Wednesday after a routine groundout - trying to coax the future Hall of Famer out of the dugout - Orioles manager Buck Showalter knew it wasn't happening. It wasn't the right time. “He had a tough at-bat, a ground ball back to the pitcher,” Showalter said, “I told a couple of our guys, 'He ain't coming out of the dugout. Just watch.' That's all you need to know about Derek because it didn't fit in the context of what was [happening]

Leahy as city attorney. The Annapolis city council must confirm the appointments, which will officially be introduced at the council's meeting Monday.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons thought his team had a real chance to make a move on the Orioles in the American League East race coming back from the All-Star break. The Blue Jays were four games out of first place, but they were facing three struggling teams, two at home, while the Orioles had to start on the West Coast with the Oakland Athletics, the Los Angeles Angels and the Seattle Mariners. The Orioles went 6-4 on that trip, won five of their next seven games and then took two of three from the Blue Jays in Toronto.

Boutique investment firm Hardesty Capital Management moved this month from its longtime home in Mount Vernon to a new office in Hunt Valley, which it said offers more modern conveniences and room to grow, while being closer to its customer base of wealthy Maryland families. The firm has looked to add clients, even as the rising stock market has helped drive its assets under management to more than $900 million, a record for the business. President Chad Meyer, who was hired as chief marketing officer last year, said the 14-person firm is looking to hire more people on the investment side to handle the increased funds, as well as staff that would help bring in business from other parts of Maryland and southern Pennsylvania.

You know those amazing videos we see of minor-league managers flipping out and getting ejected from games in emphatic fashion ? We can now add Norfolk Tides manager Gary Allenson to the highlight reel. In Sunday’s 11-5 win over Durham, the manager of the Orioles’ Triple-A affiliate took objection to a home run getting switched to a ground-rule double by the umps. So Allenson sauntered out to the warning track, scaled the outfield wall and started looking for more phantom ground-rule doubles in the shrubbery in center field.

It seems to me that the NFL and the Baltimore Ravens' staff are severely lacking in management skills ( "Ravens executives address Ray Rice investigation in exclusive interview," Sept. 10). I believe that most people feel that consistency is the key to good management. You can be a micro-manager or laissez-faire one as either can be a great manager but if your employees do not know what to expect whether it be to go hard one day and easy the next, one is judged as having poor management skills.
