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.

Check out the video right here:

    Sounds like Williams is not going to waste too much time in letting a player figure something out before he intervenes and gives his advice.

    Apparently Tim Hudson has heard from ten teams already and I suspect we are one of them. He’d be a solid back of the rotation arm.

      That would be interesting. Hudson got anything left?

    As I have posted before, I like what I hear from Matt and I think Rizzo has made a good choice. I can’t wait to see how this plays out. I’m expecting good things.
