"Ignite Your Natitude Wilbon!" -TK

Davey Johnson joined PTI to talk to Mike Wilbon & Tony Kornheiser on Thursday.  Here are some of the good quotes:

"I don't just say that because I'm an unabashed Nats homer, and I am." -TK

"We have a lot of young players, thats the key.  And that's really the only joy for a manager seein guys do the things you know they are capable of doing" - Davey

On would he fight Rizzo's Strasburg shutdown?

Basically no, "What's best for today, with an eye on tomorrow" "If all the reports that I get is the best thing we can do is after 160 innings shut him down..."

On Bryce Harper:

"He probably hits 1,000 balls a day.  He's just driven to be as good as he can be"

"He remind's me a lot of maybe a Strawberry, he's a little bit better, he knows the strike zone a little bit better"

On Stephen Strasburg:

"Reminds me a lot of Dwight Gooden, great command, great stuff"

So did we learn anything new?  Not really...
