Manager Davey Johnson Believes The Nationals Can Make The Playoffs

Newly minted Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson isn't wasting any time backing up his team and sending the Washington fan base into a fantastic frenzy. The 68-year old who took former manager Jim Riggleman's job (and jersey number) spoke with the press at a 6 P.M. EST press conference at Angel Stadium and a simple question was asked: with the Nationals only 3 1/2 games back of the Atlanta Braves and the Wild Card, can the Nationals make the playoffs? Johnson wasted little time and few words answering. ↵↵

Seriously, someone needs to immortalize those words on a T-shirt. This manager has grapefruits.
