A case for Nick Johnson

Postby kingmike74 » Mon Mar 31, 2008 7:38 am

After seeing Nick now through spring and last night. I would have to say in that park, and with the players around him, he is an easy 290-300 hitter this year with 25 HR and 100 RBI(+/-10). The right field line is 333 in Nattyville.

He is an OPS monster and is on a mission I feel. Think of him as the "other" Adam LaRoche with a better eye.

Does not turn 30 until the Sept. & as far as I am concerned, he is almost like a 4th year 27 year old. He has only had 1 full season in '06 and then in '07, the leg.

What do you think?

Nick has always had the skills, but he's never shown the ability to stay on the field. He's an injury magnet. Whether it's a broken leg or fractured wrist. Something always comes up. If he can manage 500 abs, Johnson would be a great asset to anyone's fantasy team. Also be aware that he might be traded and depending on where he lands his value can sky rocket.

Yea he's always been that hitter, he's still an injury risk though and last night doesn't change that. It was nice to see him stretch the double in the first off of Francoeur and then test him again scoring on Kearns' hit.

Man I was positive that NJ would hurt himself making that slide at 2B.

There is no question that he is a good ball player but he is never healthy. I think we all know that he will go down at some point.

Is he worth picking up in a H2H 7x7 league with OBP and OPS?

Nick the Stick is definety worth picking up depending on your roster. He will almost surely get hurt at some point, but ya don't gotta keep him. The last full year he played 147 games and hit:
.290, OPB-428, R-100, Doubles-46, HR-23, RBI-77, BB-100

Yes he is, and will be the best bench player this year in the NL, maybe baseball.

Rotoworld thinks the Nats will play Young vs lefties to try and keep Johnson in one piece. With his red hot start lets hope Nick stays in the lineup!
