Kelly Johnson loves Chase Field

Postby thejusman1 » Sun Apr 25, 2010 5:40 pm

In 2007 and 2008, KJ had .800 OPS seasons with the Braves. In 2009, he had an injury-riddled season that caused his stock to drop on everyone's draft sheets. In 2010, he's hitting lead-off for the Diamondbacks and is absolutely crushing the ball. He should easily post a career-high in homers (just hit his 7th today) and plate close to 100 times. It is absolutely criminal he is owned in only 49% of Yahoo leagues. If Kelly Johnson is floating around on your WW, you need to pick him up now. I could easily see him becoming this year's Aaron Hill.

Funny thing is, his career arc seems to be on the same path as that of Aaron Hill.

Too bad I only have Kelly Johnson as a late round flier in just one league where I have him as a sub most times to Gordon Beckham, as I do think he'll have a decent year. I had him pegged for 15 HR and he's about halfway home there. Realistically, I don't see him keeping up a Hill '09 pace or coming close though, but I'm enjoying the superb production.

I think we found this years Aaron Hill!

now if he would just start running some he would be a gold mine

I drafted him 24th round, after taking Mcgehee in the 18th, basically punting 2b/mi and I have the best combo in my league now

Still early yet, I am cautiously optimistic with KJ

Sure as hell glad I drafted him though :)

One of my top sleepers going into the season. But I only got him in one league because others had him as a sleeper.
