Davey Johnson, who prior to last season said he liked the Nats’ pitching better thant he Phillies’ (he was right), who manages all that Natitude, whose team blew a hundred run lead in Game 5 of the NLDS, at home, gave some insight to reporters today about what could be the Nats’ 2013 slogan:"World Series or bust, that's probably the slogan this year."

Chances are his comment was tongue-in-cheek, not unlike Billy Mack’s quasi-parody, Christmas is All Around Us. Thing is, Mack's single stuck, found its way to the top of England’s pop charts and became the Christmas number one single in Love Actually.

So while Johnson might not have been wholly serious, like Mack, he may be on to something this holiday season. I imagine Nats goofy COO Andrew Feffer thinking to himself: Brilliant. Done. World Series or burst.
