10:23 AM ET 09.29 | Jayson Werth understands his role with the Washington Nationals. He has opinions, and no matter how much weight they carry inside the clubhouse, they may not matter to the front office. That did not prevent him from expressing one Saturday evening about the most pressing topic of the Nationals' offseason. If Werth could pick the Nationals' next manager, he would start -- no matter if it may seem far-fetched -- with the biggest name possible: Cal Ripken Jr., the baseball legend whom Werth played in the same organization with at the start of his professional career as a Baltimore Orioles farmhand. "He would be my No. 1 choice," Werth said.

THe Nats have done the ex-Oriole manager thing twice already. Time to move on.

Cal: "Check's in the mail, Jason."

Cal would be too high priced for the Lerner family especially for someone with no previous managing experience.

The Managerial musical chair thing will probably start in next couple of weeks.
