How about Nick Johnson?

Postby rmeesig » Mon Jun 07, 2004 11:06 pm

He's definitely had an effect on the 'spos since his return. I read that since his return, they've averaged +1.5runs/game. He's definitely inspired Vidro (.375/.944 last week).

Last year he was an OBP machine for the Yanks. Do you all think he'll keep this up?

Last week:
11/22
7Runs
1HR
3RBI
.500avg
1.441 OPS

I thought he would struggle upon his return. Wrong!!! Looks sharp, and the only concern now is his durability.

Nick Johnson's ability to draw walks and get his pitch is uncanny. And like rmeesig mentioned, his bat is really helping the offense. If he keeps up this kind of play, you will want to value Expos' pitchers a little more.

I just dropped Mondesi for NJ. Modesi has a short life ahead of him with the Angels getting healthier. Anderson could be back this month.

Pick him up because by next week someone else will.
I just grabbed him for depth at 1B and Utl.
His power is starting to come around.
Big Nick Johnson! ;-D

Who would you take as your 1b:

Johnson
Overbay
Travis Hafner
or Konerko

Right now I have Konerko but I'm thinking that either Hafner or Johnson are better. I just can't decide on which one to take.
Sorry my program for making sigs is broken
