Braves' Johnson focusing on approach to cleanup spot

ATLANTA -- Another atypical part of the Braves' atypical lineup, Chris Johnson paused when trying to remember the last time he was as consistently high in the order. "College," he said, smiling. "College I think I hit third." There's little that fits the blueprint when it comes to having Johnson at the cleanup spot. Last season, nine players hit 20-plus...

Atlanta Braves Best Second Option

The Atlanta Braves don’t have a prototypical number two hitter that has excellent speed, can bunt with the best of them and who can spray the ball around.  That doesn’t mean they don’t have a great option. Braves third baseman Chris Johnson could do a great job in the number two hole.  He has a quick bat, can hit to all fields, makes good contact, and perhaps most importantly...

Cannot give Terry Pendleton a pass on dust up with Johnson

I happened to be flipping through some links this morning and came upon this report of a dust up between Braves' coach, Terry Pendleton, and Chris Johnson. I found the replay to be quite disturbing. The problem for me here is that I have no idea of the history that preceded the incident. I do not know if Chris Johnson is a jerk or not. I do not know if he did throw his...

Is Atlanta Braves Third Baseman Chris Johnson Really This Good?

It’s not often that the throw-in player of a trade ends up being just as important as the main piece that was acquired. Usually, the individual who is “thrown in” to a deal is typically used as a stopgap to fill a positional need while the team waits patiently for a prospect to develop. For the Atlanta Braves, they needed a third baseman coming into the year due to future...

The Braves' hidden star

A guy named Chris is really tearing the cover off the baseball after being traded from a team in Texas to a contender. If you wrote that sentence and showed it to most fans, they would immediately think of the Chris named Davis. But there is another one that is doing very good things for the Atlanta Braves and this one is named Chris Johnson. Chris Johnson is currently leading...
