May 17 Nationals first baseman Nick Johnson went 1-for-4 with two runs and a RBI on Monday night in a 5-2 win over the Brewers. He is hitting .321 with five home runs and 22 RBI.
Views: Johnson's average will help plenty of fantasy teams, but his lack of production in other areas makes him a borderline starter in NL-only leagues.
yeah, so the average is good for those teams with BAs below .320, but those 5 homers, 20 runs, 22 rbi and 2 SB are really gonna hurt you elsewhere. thanks, yahoo.
seriously, this guy has been tearing things up (i think he doesn't have a hit in like 4 games this year or something), and until he cools off, there's no reason he should be on waivers in any but the smallest of leagues. i'm pretty sure this is the player the yankees always thought he would become. i mean, his OPS is near .950 for crying out loud! does anyone else think he can keep this up for the year? i certainly do. perhaps not at these levels, but .300/90/90/10 isn't out of the question, and that's roster-worthy where i come from.
