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.”

Link.

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.'”

What happened to him? Just remember, Davey Johnson didn’t sell out. He bought in.

He lost his mustache and lost his edge. True fact.

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

I can’t be the only fangrapher that thought this was going to be a tasteless but hilarious before and after picture expose of Davey Skeletor Johnson.

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.
