Jayson Werth publicly threw his support behind Cal Ripken Jr. for the role of the Nats next manager. In a call with Holden and Danny on 106.7 The Fan, Ryan Zimmerman had some nice things to say about Ripken but admitted that the baseball legend wouldn’t be his first choice.
“I’ve met him a few times,” Zimmerman said of Ripken. “I think, obviously growing up he was mine and probably millions of other people’s favorite player, and I respect what he did, how he played the game. I haven’t talked to him at all about being a manager for us, or just being a manager at all.
