Davey Says Nats Have More Gifted Athletes Than 83-84 Mets

This, from Adam Rubin:

Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson was asked whether the current Nationals team, with young stars such as Stephen Strasburg, reminds him of the 1983-84 Mets, who were a couple of years away from winning a World Series.

“This club has more potential than that club,” Johnson replied Monday at Nationals camp in Viera. “It just has a lot more gifted athletes. The potential I see on this club is pretty damn high. It’s going to be my job to see that we play like it.”

Wow, never really considered the comparison, but obviously Davey would know. Right?
