Nick Johnson playing great -- almost no buzz

It's a shame that his wrists will hold him back so much. Saw quite a few articles about them last year that said he would battle his wrists for the rest of his career. Some sort of medical condition. Do a "search" and you should be able to find the threads that have the info in them.

Ride him while hot, but don't be real surprised when those wrists send him back to the DL.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I was trying to tell people. You could see this inferno starting to slowly burn over the last couple weeks. First, he was just hitting for average. But, man, not only is he hitting for average now and taking walks, but the power stroke is coming, too! You gotta grab this guy if he is on the WW! ;-D

hafner is the best bet. johnson does have injury problems and hafner is just the better player, at least at this point.

i drafted him in my deep 14 teamer and he's been made me quite happy. that said, it's hard finding room for him when i've also got overbay, matos, klesko, and floyd taking up 1B/UTIL spots.

if only the top of my draft had panned out as well as the bottom!
