Nick Johnson to Marlins
According to foxsports.com, the Florida Marlins have acquired 1B Nick Johnson from the Washington Nationals in exchange for AA prospect Aaron Thompson.
Johnson is hitting .295 with 6HR and 44RBI for the Nationals.
Johnson turns 31 this September, and will become a Free Agent after this season. The Nationals reportedly will pay $1.8 million remaining on Johnson’s contract.
I’m a big Murphy fan, but you have to wonder if Johnson could have been a good fit for the Mets this year.
About the Author: Michael J. Branda
My time with MMO began in July of 2009 when I wrote a Fan Post defending Omar Minaya (before it was cool to do that.) I grew up a Mets fan with the mid 1980's teams. My favorite Met of all-time is (and was) Wally Backman. When it comes to sabermetrics versus old school thinking, I like to think I meet in the middle. I believe thinking of new ways to get answers is helpful, especially when the same way has not produced results. However, I think over-thinking certain situations can get you into trouble. I'm excited for the new regime, because I believe they have pieces in place to focus on several aspects of the Mets organization. I've waited this long for a World Series, waiting a few more years for another chance isn't going to kill me.
