Beat the NL? They can’t even Beat Takeshi!
One month ago today, on an idyllic day in Southern California, Davey Johnson walked into the Washington Nationals dugout and managed his first baseball game in 11 years. He loved every minute, he said afterward, even though they lost. He savored the challenge and could not wait for more.
After the 10-game stretch coming out of the all-star break, some of that verve, at least outwardly, has drained from Johnson. It is hard to love every minute of recording five hits in two games, or of falling into last place. His record is 9-15, which is the fourth-worst record in the majors over that span.
“I have a high boiling point,” Johnson said after last night’s loss. “And I’m getting closer to it.”
