He's likely to hit 5th for the Expos instead of 8th, as he did for the Yankees. His OBP should be very high unlike Phelps who strikes out a ton. In my 10 team fp league, 18th round, Johnson was taken long ago; Phelps and Fullmer still haven't been.
I'm in a league that doesn't count K/BB ratios for hitters, and not OBA either. So Phelps is probably going to be better. And what makes you think Johnson will get more playing time? Phelps should have plenty, and in that lineup, with as much power as he has, I'd take him easily over Johnson.
And if Johnson was taken that long ago and Phelps hasn't been taken yet, then that proves my point taht people are forgetting about Phelps.
