Matt Williams got 18 first-place votes and 109 points. Pittsburgh’s Clint Hurdle, who earned the NL honor last year, was second with eight first-place votes and 80 points. Bruce Bochy of the World Series champion San Francisco Giants was third with three firsts and 30 points.
Which other SF Giant has had the kind of career that gets them a bronze likeness outside AT&T Park?
The Nationals will hold a news conference Friday to introduce Williams as the team’s fifth manager since it moved to Washington from Montreal in 2005. He replaces Davey Johnson, who is retiring.
