Nationals Manager Davey Johnson after crushing loss: “We proved our worth.”
Several hours later and I'm still trying to figure out why Washington Nationals Manager Davey Johnson elected to pitch to the Cardinals Pete Kozma instead of walking him and facing Pitcher Jason Motte...A 6-0 lead squandered, and the Nats were down to one strike from winning when everything blew up. I've said it a dozen times, the concept of relief pitching in baseball has turned the game into a joke. One Pitcher who is usually a head case is trusted to close out a game and although there are a few that get it done consistently. more flat out throw games away...I feel bad for Washington fans. On the other hand you have to tip your hat to the St Louis Cardinals who find a way to win despite losing one fo ten games biggest sluggers...a long time winning Manager (retires) pitching coach (retires) you name it...What a game..
Orioles: The Johnson Curse -- The effect of curses cannot be minimized in Major League Baseball. How long did the Bosox suffer under the Curse of the Bambino? The Cubs still slave under the Curse of the Goat. It is no coincidence that the Orioles suffered 15 straight losing seasons after firing (we know it was a firing, not a resignation) of Manager Davey Johnson. What broke the curse? Davey Johnson managing the Washingtom Nationals into the playoffs, giving Davey that one more playoff berth the Os denied him! Fate is now satisified. The Os can go on with their lives. Do you think that the Os and the Nats being eliminated on the same day, both losing three-out-of-five, is mere coincidence? It helped the Os all year to have Jim Johnson (all those Johnsons are related, y'know) as their closer, although he was responsible for two playoff losses. Perhaps they should have started in game 5 Steve Johnson, Davey's great-grand-nephew, twice removed. [Do they give ALDS MVP awards? If so, I think it sh ...

We’ll see how good we are.”
Bryce Harper was 16 when he made the cover of Sports Illustrated as "Baseball's Chosen One." He was 17 when he was the top pick in the amateur draft. And he was 19 when he made his major league debut with the Washington Nationals. Now, after two months of play, he's measuring up to all the hype.

It's to bad it took an injury to Wilson to get the promotion. Nonetheless.this is a great mother's day story. Sandy Leon gets the call to replace Wilson Ramos on the Nationals’ roster By Adam Kilgore The Nationals’ deepest minor league position is catcher, and from their reservoir they chose Sandy Leon to replace Wilson Ramos on the roster after he tore his right ACL and back up Jesus Flores. The Nationals have complete confidence in Leon, 23, when it comes to his defense. Manager Davey Johnson called Leon “an outstanding receiver,” and their scouts have clocked Leon throwing to second base in less than two seconds. “He’s going to impress some people,” shortstop Ian Desmond said. Leon has improved his hitting this season at Harrisburg, too, which helped him get the call over Class AAA Syracuse catchers Carlos Maldonado and Jhonatan Solano, who just returned from an injury. Leon, a career .246 hitter in the minors, has batted .316/.356/.457 this season at Harrisburg. This spring, Leon worked ...
I got my itinerary from the Nationals for Mondays game. I get to the park around 3:00 and get a tour of the park until 4:00 or so. Then it's off to Manager Davey Johnson's meeting for the press. Then I get to stand behind he batting cage and watch the players take BP. Around 6:00, it's up to the press box where I get to meet the Nationals' broadcasters and beat writers and then to my seat in the press box to watch the game. At some point, I'll go down to the field leve and take photographs, and then into the locker room and talk to some of the players. Other than that, no big deal :) Tim, I wish I could take you to this one. It would be a great payback for that first one you took me to as a kid against the Milwaukee Brewers in 1970.

Harper nuts...read on... With a 5-4 walkoff win over the Arizona Diamondbacks, thanks to a two-run home run by shortstop Ian Desmond, the Nationals snapped a five-game losing streak on Wednesday. Teenage phenom Bryce Harper helped spark the ninth-inning rally with a leadoff double off the center field wall. Sure, it was the team’s first win in past six games, and only the first time they’ve won with him in the lineup, but based on his contributions on Wednesday alone – two doubles, two runs scored, an all-hustle single and an aggressive slide into home – teammates continue to rave about him. Enough, it seems, can’t be said about what energy a 19-year old has injected into this team and, particularly, its lineup. “Here’s a 19-year-old kid that’s getting the bat out,” Manager Davey Johnson said. “It’s infectious. It hurts you a little bit missing your three and four-hole hitters, because when they start doing it, it kind of flows. But seeing a 19-year-old hitting seventh come along and ...
