bad argument. Brooks Conrad isn't necessarily good for 3 errors a game either. play that game 20 more times and I bet that doesn't happen once. something just got to him, Dan Uggla all-star game style. you can't pick out an anomalie and say that wouldn't have happened if Kelly Johnson was there, because if you replayed the game, it wouldn't have happed if Brooks Conrad was there.
Also, the argument here is that kelly Johnson isn't actually all that good. So to say that the Padres would be in the playoffs is stretching it. He certainly isn't a game changer. also, to add.. his home and away splits are so drastic with chase field, imagine how bad he would be if he played every other game at Petco?? certainly not the type of player that can save a whole team from a complete meltdown.
