Johnson changing team’s mindset

Published: Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 02:34 PM.

Johnson stressed that baseball is a game where the biggest, strongest and fastest don’t always come out on top.

“The thing, to me, that makes baseball special and the best game in the world is the best player doesn’t necessarily always win,” he said. “You’ve got to be in the right place at the right time and you’ve got to be fundamentally correct and then you have to understand the game.

“If you can do those things — be in the right place at the right time, get there and be fundamentally sound when you get there and talk to each other and communicate — then you have a pretty good chance of being as good as you can be.”
