Miguel Cabrera the worthy MVP, despite complaints

Nationals skipper Davey Johnson, named National League manager of the year this week, will be 70 when next season opens and he says it will be his final season as manager. Twenty-nine years after beginning his first managerial job with the Mets, Johnson has compiled an outstanding record with five teams over 16 seasons, winning one pennant and one World Series and finishing first or second 12 times.
