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.

UPDATE: The Phillies on Tuesday afternoon named Mackanin interim manager for the rest of the season. The Phillies travel to Atlanta on Thursday night to open a three-game series. They know what downtown hotel they are staying in. They know what flight they will board. And they know who will pitch. But the Phillies are not fully certain who their manager will be against the Braves. President Pat Gillick said Monday that interim manager Pete Mackanin will manage the remainder of this week's four-game series against Milwaukee.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday upheld the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's authority to manage demand response, the market for compensating electricity customers who reduce their power consumption during peak demand hours. Big electricity generators, who compete with demand response in power markets, had challenged FERC's authority. They argued that the federal agency may only regulate wholesale sales of electricity, and that demand response intrudes on the retail market, which is the sole province of state regulators.

Ten cups. There always has to be 10 cups. That's the way Rachel Grace, the manager for the North Penn girls' basketball team, likes it. Or rather, that's what coach Maggie deMarteleire prefers, and similar to the mind-set of a successful player, Grace does what her coach asks of her. Over the course of a game, the conscientious Grace immediately greets each player who is subbed out with water. During timeouts, she supplies the cups as soon as the whistle blows. Then she's back, meticulously filling the cups throughout the entirety of the contest.

Doug Pederson stood in the front of the NovaCare Complex auditorium for more than an hour Tuesday afternoon. He thanked lots of people and answered question after question about the most high-profile job he has ever held. Sure, he once opened a season as an NFL starting quarterback right here in Philadelphia, but nothing he did or said mattered much, which was good because he never did or said much that mattered. Pederson was Andy Reid's chosen body and mind to bridge the gap to the start of Donovan McNabb's career.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Saturday offered a reminder of what Philadelphia once had with Andy Reid. He coached deep into the playoffs, as he often did with the Eagles. And he answered questions about his time management, which he also did often with the Eagles. The New England Patriots stopped the Kansas City Chiefs' 11-game winning streak with a 27-20 win at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots advanced to their fifth consecutive AFC championship game. The Chiefs were eliminated, and the loss allows the Eagles to hire offensive coordinator Doug Pederson as their head coach.

The emergency manager appointed by Gov. Christie to analyze Atlantic City's finances said Friday that "parochial" political interests were impeding progress there and endorsed a state takeover of local government. In his final report to the governor, Kevin Lavin said the city must enact structural changes and take bolder steps to cut costs, by monetizing assets to close a projected $300 million deficit over the next five years and be financially stable thereafter. He did not recommend bankruptcy.

IF MAYOR KENNEY was looking not to raise expectations too high in his inaugural address Monday, he succeeded. The new mayor said the "vision" that would guide his administration would be to "deliver efficient, effective services to all Philadelphians. " Is vision the right word to describe Kenney's goals? Surely, making the buses run on time, keeping the streets clean and offering good policing are admirable goals, but they don't represent the pinnacle of what government should accomplish; it's the base line.
