It’s a great collection that shows how canny, salty and funny Johnson can be, especially when it comes to Bryce Harper or Jayson Werth. Maybe the best from the set: ““Well none of my guys could, ’cause we can’t score.” That was Davey, reacting to the news that the Boston Red Sox’s Mike Napoli was dating a porn star. The team was in the midst of an offensive drought.
Like I said, salty.
