Time to dump Kelly Johnson? He's been sucky lately

Postby frank69m » Tue Jun 26, 2007 6:35 pm

he's not in the lineup today and has been moved down to 7th in the lineup.


Anyone else dumping him or know what is wrong?

I'm sticking with him for a while. The whole line-up is slumping right now, so Bobby Cox is just trying to shake things up moving people around in the order. I've been tempted to take Fontenot and drop Johnson, but he's shown enough promise before that I consider him worth hanging onto. I'll give him a couple more weeks and if he hasn't busted out of it by then, I'll drop him.

Yahoo's notes:

Jun 27 Mark Bowman, of Braves.MLB.com, reports the Atlanta Braves may employ a platoon at second base given 2B Kelly Johnson's recent struggles at the plate and the fact that SS Yunel Escobar needs some playing time.

Is it really time to drop him now?
