What Happened To Davey Johnson?

Davey Johnson on Joe Maddon:

“I don’t know him that well, but I thought he was a weird wuss anyways.”


When did Davey Johnson become a grumpy old codger? Wasn’t he the first guy with a computer, looking for every edge he could get? Or, as a commenter on Baseball Think Factory said: “On the Mets broadcast they were talking about this and they said ’30 years ago Davey Johnson was Joe Maddon.'”

    I dunno about “weird wuss” but Maddon totally blew the situation out of proportion.

    Team Davey all the way! Down with weird wusses!

    Is your inner monologue telling you that since you believe in Maddon’s shifts you might be a weird wuss too… you are correct.
