HaHa, Irishfan just quoted on Hot Stove via Tweet!
I would rather have Johnson play 3b.
Bittersweet for sure, but I can live with this. Simmons at lead off is an unknown, but a rotation of Medlen, Huddy, Maholm, Minor, and Teheran and with this pen.......wow!
Francisco will bat 8, so if he struggles some it won't kill the line up.
So who is this Johnson? he was with the Astros before?
we send Brandon Drury a 1 baseman prospect . we send 5 players for 2

Johnson is a good bat, who I think is an upgrade over Francisco. He is poor defensively, but its not like CHipper was too good this past year. Simmons can cover any lost ground.
Would be much better with prado, but this looks dangerous too
Chris Johnson really sucks at defense, i rather give Francisco a chance, a platoon don't seems right since Johnson hit RHP better than LHP, so i will give Francisco the position and Johnson will be on the wings. Johnson will now serve as a back up first baseman as well.
