DMV: Joe Maddon Declares Davey Johnson Guilty Of ‘Pussy Move’

Nats lose fourth straight, this time to Tampa Bay with Wang on the hill, and ex-Nats RP Joel Peralta was ejected in the eighth for having pine tar on his glove, after Davey Johnson called attention to it. Joe Maddon took exception, of course, and this is now an interesting series. [WaPo, Nats Journal]

  1. Not a Ray’s fanbut I agree with Manager. How do you get thrown out of a game for doctoring a ball before you throw a pitch. Maybe the powers that be are bigger pussies than Johnson.

  2. Thank you to Jamie for not editing Pussy to “[chicken]” or “P***y”.

    Not sure what to make of the Peralta pinetar debate but do know it’s less of a deal than is being made.

  3. Didn’t think anything of this pine tar situation but reading some NJ posts today has been revealing. Two arguments against Davey that I buy:

    1) Guy busted ass for you and you benefited from his pine tar use for you, so in fairness you deal with it quietly.

    2) If Davey did this without doing his due diligence about his own pitchers, the door is open for inquiry you might not want.

    That said, no one will give a baker’s fuck about this come playoff push, or even next Tuesday. And the Nats lost anyway.
