Davey Johnson made an appearance on the MLB Network yesterday and had a very curious observation about our nation’s capitol, leading the Washington Post’s Dan Steinberg to suggest, “possibly he got cracked in the head with a bat.”

“I like challenges,” Johnson said. “And this is a challenge: to put Washington on the map. It’s a baseball town, not a football town.”

I’m thinking Johnson maybe was the victim of some aggressive editing here, and he was trying to argue that his challenge is to create a situation where one day you could say of Washington, it’s a baseball town, not a football town.
