Charles Johnson situation

Did anyone else see this. he is third on the rockies depth chart. I am sure there are some hard feelings with him and the organization but he is really trying to get out of Colorado. What a fabulous back-up catcher he would make at $750,000. He would be a great back-up for Loduca so he would be well rested.

 

Probably not going to happen and we would have to give up a pretty good prospect, but it sure makes an interesting thought imo.

Hard feeling?

 

You betcha there are hard feelings. He's better off, and the franchise is better off not having him return here.

 

That the Rockies are willing to pay those kinds of numbers just to get rid of the guy speaks volumes as to how pivotal the trade (from the Marlins to the Rockies) was in the first place.

Delgado, Cabrera, Lowell, Pierre. Those four position players are more marketeable than Johnson right now.

 

However, he would give us a better off the bench option than either Treanor or DiFelice (Willingham isn't an option at this point, IMO).

 

 

I wouldn't do it, but I wouldn't be disappointed if we did it (if that makes sense).

The probably with CJ as a backup is that although for that price he is an excellent person to have on the bench, LoDuca plays a lot. CJ wont be getting too many at bats, maybe once a week at best he can get a start and not even that. As for team chemistry, if he knows his role as a bench player then its ok. but w/e it wont happen he'll start for another team
