Nats Players Not Sure If Ripken Is The Right Guy

Posted By Charles Mager On October 11, 2013 @ 1:58 PM In MLB | No Comments

Cal Ripken Jr. [1]Sarah Kogod reports that Jayson Werth is pro-Cal Ripken as the next Washington manager while Ryan Zimmerman is behind bench coach Randy Knorr.

Wishing he was a manager and having people say it’s a good idea because he’s famous and was a good player while not having done the first thing that normally prepares one to be a manager like coach or work in the minor leagues doesn’t always fulfill those desires.

Being a good player is a totally different thing than being a good manager.

It’s about seeing the game from a different perspective than you would as an individual player. Ripken hasn’t really ever done that.
