I'll ride him out. Picked up Lowell when Owens hit the DL but now that I've seen this kid's on a tear I'll give him the shot. Hope he keeps it up! ;-D

Every year guys break out in a BIG way.Why not Dan Johnson this year? I'm a believer in him that this is his break-out season.If he's available in your league grab him now.He won't be there to grab next week.If you snooze you lose.

I really liked Dan Johnson as a dark horse to hit 30 bombs last season. Maybe I was a year early. I am definitely on board this year.

Assets-An amazingly disciplined hitter, Johnson can crush the ball out to all fields. Hits well against lefties and righties.

Flaws-Not a great base-runner and no better than mediocre at first base. Needs to improve with runners in scoring position.

Career potential-Has all-star potential at first base.

;-D ;-D ;-D

Johnson will be a Top 10 1st Baseman for here on out.

I think a Dan Johnson Fan Club thread (along the lines of those for Upton and Hamilton) would be pretty random and funny...

Dan Johnson, 1B, OAK – If you're in a mixed league where Johnson is still available, pick him up! He's got the fifth spot in the order, his double vision is cured, and he has the skills of a .300 hitter. I can see 25 HR over a full season; he cranked two yesterday. AL: $25, Mixed: $12.


Looks like they're on board as well.
