Nick Johnson starting to look good and isn't hurt...

He might be a sleeper 1B to keep your eye on. The average and the OBP is very good. All he needs to do is starting hitting for a little more power and he might be worth a spot on somebody's team. I always liked this guy.

You Yankees' fans kill me, lol. You hate Brown, Weaver, Vazquez, Nick Johnson, Loaiza, etc. Either you guys love a player (i.e Tino Martinez who sucked rocks in St. Louis) or you just detest him. There is absolutely no in-between.

In Nick's defense, his wrist was broken. What's the dude supposed to do? Rub a little dirt in it and keep playing? lol.

Think Caseylike production if he stays healthy. Except he'll prob get less R/RBI until Frank moves him up in the lineup for good.

You Yanks haters kill me - always the same ol' same ol'. NOT ALL of us feel exactly the same way, Mr. Yankee Hater Generalizer.

I for one like Nicky and hope he succeeds. Most Yanks fans preferred him to Giambi, by far. It wasn't the fans fault he was always getting hurt. I'm not saying it was his either. I also hold nothing against Weaver, though I am probably in the minority. Lots of Yanks fans are aware of how badly Stottlemyre screws pitchers up.

I'm just sick of You, Yanks fans... this and that. Gimme a break.
