In the February chill of 1975, a 15-year-old boy left his home in the Mexican state of Guanajuato, slipped illegally across the border at Yuma, Ariz., and boarded a plane for Philadelphia. Along with two older friends who joined him, Isidro Rodriguez was headed for snowbound Kennett Square. The promise of big money from working the mushroom farms there was the talk of their little city, Moroleón. "But it was a lie - and I didn't like it," recalls Rodriguez, who found hundreds of migrant workers from his town already toiling there in the dark, smelly, windowless cinder-block buildings for $1.85 an hour.

CHICAGO - Davey Johnson was named manager of the Washington Nationals on Sunday, three days after Jim Riggleman stunned the team by resigning. Johnson will manage the rest of the season and his first game will be Monday against the Los Angeles Angels. He has been a senior adviser with the team since 2009, though he hasn't managed in the big leagues since 2000 with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Johnson also agreed to a three-year consulting contract through 2013 that will allow him to remain with the team and help select a successor for next season.

By Paul Jablow It would be a nightmare Rotisserie league lineup: Tony La Russa and Ron Washington as the double-play combination, Terry Francona at first, Joe Girardi behind the plate, and Charlie Manuel, with his .198 big-league batting average, alongside Ron Roenicke in the outfield. These guys - all marginal major-league players at best - were heading six of the 10 teams in contention for the playoffs in the final days of the baseball season. Three other top teams were led by managers who never made the majors.

Chris Stamp, 70, who as a cockney kid from East London aspired to make a documentary film about the rise of British rock in the 1960s and ended up helping discover and manage a raucous working-class quartet called The Who, died Nov. 24 in Manhattan. The cause was complications of colorectal cancer, his wife, Calixte, said. "I was knocked out," Mr. Stamp recalled in 1966 of the night he first saw The Who perform in 1964. "But the excitement I felt wasn't coming from the group. I couldn't get near enough.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - There are more than a few Alabama folks who will tell you that junior AJ McCarron could be the best quarterback the Crimson Tide has had since, dare we say, Joe Namath. With apologies to Richard Todd (or was that Jay Barker?), that was nearly half a century ago. Yet when most people think about the defending national champions, the passing game probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind. Maybe it's defense, even if this one isn't Nick Saban's strongest.

On Monday, Cleveland manager Terry Francona let the world in on the secret he used to direct a 24-game turnaround to 92 wins and the AL Central flag for the Indians in his first year at the helm. "We stayed away from chicken and beer," a jovial Francona said of the Tribe's 10-0 run to end the regular season. "That helped. " Tito was alluding to the end of the 2011 season when the Red Sox collapsed with a 7-20 record in the last month. That was followed by accusations that Francona had allowed the Boston clubhouse to become an Animal House, with players drinking beer, eating chicken, and playing Donkey Kong during games.

After more than six hours of debate, the Lower Merion Township commissioners voted late Wednesday to approve a $275,000 pay package for township manager Douglas Cleland. A minority of Republicans led by commissioner Jenny Brown tried without success to amend the two-year pact, which would have caused it to be tabled under Roberts Rules of Order. The vote was 8 to 5, with one member of the 14-member panel absent. The yes votes all came from Democrats; the no votes came from three Republicans and two Democrats who broke with party lines.

ATLANTIC CITY - With casinos folding like bad poker hands in this ailing Shore resort, Gov. Christie said Wednesday he would consider a proposal to create an emergency manager for the city - drawing a sharp dissent from its mayor. Don Guardian, who became mayor in January, called the emergency manager position unnecessary, because a state monitor was already assigned to review and report on Atlantic City's finances. "So the concept of a different title I'm kind of lost on. All of that exists right now," Guardian said in a phone interview Wednesday night.

A 2010 federal law bars private money managers who invest state and local pension funds from making political contributions to state and local officials who hire private money managers. But wealthy hedge, buyout, and real estate investment magnates still can and do finance Congress members and national political committees closely tied to state and local politicians while also collecting fat fees from state and local pension funds. Last week, New Jersey and Philadelphia both acted on legislation that attempts to curb these conflicts of interest.

The Union's interim manager, Jim Curtin, wanted to clear up some rumors and began Wednesday's news conference at PPL Park with a simple message: The interim tag has yet to be taken off. Curtin was responding to published reports that said it would happen. (The Inquirer reported that the sides were on the verge of a deal but that it was not completed.) This is not to suggest that Curtin won't have the tag removed, but as of Wednesday's news conference, his status had not changed.
