I really hope this is a fluke.

Well this is very sad. I love watching Chris Johnson play and I can't think of anything I've said or done that would cause this. I got a little paranoid and started checking other Braves I follow on Twitter, and a quick spot-check of 4 or 5 of them shows no one else has blocked me. I also follow his fiancee, and she didn't block me either. If anyone knows what's...

Chris Johnson and swing batter batter

Remember in Little League or PAL (like I played) where the players on the field would chant, "Swing Batter Batter," before each pitch? Apparently, Chris Johnson of the Atlanta Braves is still hearing those chants in his head. Of course, Johnson has had multiple occurrences of blowing up with his temper, so who knows what else is going on in his head. But the bottom line...

Braves' Johnson atones for early mistake vs. Red Sox

ATLANTA -- The ball hit off the edge of the grass in front of third and a charging Chris Johnson barehanded it, took two steps and fired to Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman to get the Red Sox's David Ross. "I had to kind of do a do-or-die play right there to get rid of it," Johnson said. "I don't do those plays a lot. But it was pretty cool." It was...

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...
