Nick Johnson is a great hitter with superb patience. He reminds me of the post-prime Helton that is much more brittle. I guess I would rank Johnson's ceiling as our present day Helton.

Excellent analogy. I think we can expect 20 hrs 90 rbi and around .300. If healthy, he'll be an everyday player since he's also a very good first baseman. He's a quality CI or backup 1b.

in all seriousness, I added him to the bench. Won't kill you your avg. and has good upside.


I like these projections, but coming back from a leg injury may limit his speed a little bit. I would go with:

.345 AVG .480 OBP 42 HR 136 RBI 22 SBS (to account for his reduced speed)

MVP! MVP! MVP! :-D
