"You come down and manage the team!!!"

After his Nationals were swept by the Phillies yesterday manager Davey Johnson was heard in the clubhouse yelling "you come down and manage the team!" to what Bill Ladson of MLB.com identified as general manager Mike Rizzo.

Once that happened all the reporters were told to leave the clubhouse for 15 minutes and when they returned Johnson explained: "I had a discussion with my boss."

He declined to get into any further details and Rizzo declined to comment about the incident at all, leaving everyone to speculate about what was really going on.

Trouble in paradise.

Wow, I don't get that. Things couldn't be much better for the Nats.

It will be an interesting month. Atlanta has as good a chance of catching them as we do the Yankees. It will be interesting if the lose a couple more. They are flying to FL tonight. That should be fun.

Since I live between Baltimore and Washington, I'm "rooting" for the Nats all the time except for when they play the O's interleague, or if the O's and Nats face off in the world series. Barring that, I'm pulling for the Nats as a backup plan in case the O's get eliminated. It's nice to have a semi-local team doing well (Washington is further away than Bmore to me) but I'd MUCH rather that it be the O's.

However, I would never go to a Nats game if they were playing anyone else than the O's, and if they were playing the O's, I'd root for the O's 100% of the time. I don't have any Nats gear (t-shirts, caps, etc) and have tons of O's gear.

To sum it up, I want the Nats to win more than any other National League team, but I'm still 99% an O's fan. :)

So... this losing streak of theirs has me mildly concerned, but if the Braves beat them in the playoff race, it's not a heartbreaker for me. I'll be watching the O's much more intently.

As much as we all like Davey. He aint no choir boy. He has been fired from every managing job he ever had.

Maybe he pops off more than he should?

Davey has 2 things going for (and against) him. He IS the smartest guy in the room, and he doesn't need the job.
