Davey Johnson cracks joke about porn stars and Nationals’ inability to score

It has been a tremendously disappointing season for the Washington Nationals. Despite being heralded as potentially one of the top teams in the National League, the team has regressed a bit, sliding into mediocrity as the team watches the Atlanta Braves run away with the NL East.

Nationals skipper Davey Johnson has attempted to put a brave face on each and every day he heads to the ballpark, and has even tried incorporating gallows humor into his assessment of the team as a means to deal with a disappointing situation by cracking a suicide joke a few weeks ago.

Johnson appears to have moved from suicide humor into PG13-rated sex humor. And Johnson deserves credit: He clearly can operate in all kinds of comedic mediums, especially when the opportunity presents itself given the team’s woeful inability to generate runs. Currently, the Nationals are 27th in the league in runs scored.

Johnson was making his weekly appearance with the Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan when he commented on how the hosts were playing it a bit raunchy during their Tuesday program. The hosts replied that it had a lot to do with the gossip surrounding whether or not Boston Red Sox catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli may have some kind of relationship with porn star Rachel Starr in light of some tweets from the X-rated actress offered up about the ballplayer.

“I’ve got scouts out there that [say] you guys have been really raunchy today,” said Johnson.

“Oh, you know why? Because Mike Napoli is dating a porn star,” retorted one of the show’s hosts.

And now that the setup was complete, Johnson delivered a dazzling display of well-executed comedic gold:

“Well none of my guys could cause we can’t score,” Johnson cracked.

HEY-OHHHHHHH!!!

I’m not sure how the rest of his appearance went after that zinger, but if Johnson knew anything about showmanship, he should have ended the weekly appearance right there. Always leave on a high note.
