• And Speaking Of Nick Johnson

    Posted by on July 7th, 2011 · Comments (0)

    Eric Chavez may in fact be the new Nick Johnson, but there will always be a place in my heart for the original Nick Johnson.  When  last heard from, Nick signed a minor league contract with the Cleveland Indians.   This took place in March of 2011.  He spent a few more months getting himself ready to play and then set off on his quest to return to the majors.  He got as far as Triple-A with the Columbus Clippers when, surprise, surprise, he found himself back on the DL.  His last game to date was June 27, at the time he had an OBP of .304,  with 1 RBI in 56 plate appearances.  He has only one extra base hit (double) and has struck out 15 times!  Actually if you are old enough (and I certainly am) the original Nick Johnson is the new Ron Blomberg.
