At Friday’s press conference CSN caught up with a few Nats players who were in attendance. Jayson Werth, Ian Desmond and Tanner Roark were there in the first row to welcome their new manager, alongside bench coach Randy Knorr who will remain as the team’s bench coach.
Some of those players had voiced their support for other candidates, whether it be Knorr or Cal Ripken, Jr. They now, however, understand the decision and are ready to get started with Williams.
