CHRIS JOHNSON RUMORS

How Will The Tribe’s Expanded Roster Look?

As it sits right now, the Indians have 41 men listed on their 40 man roster. However, because Gavin Floyd and Nick Hagadone are on the team’s 60-Day disabled list, they do not count against...

Johnson Showing Trade Could Be Even Better Than Initially Thought

Last week when Cleveland Indians General Manager Chris Antonetti found a way to trade away both Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn and get a Major League Baseball player in return, it felt like a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat or David Copperfield performing one of his famous escape tricks. Swisher and Bourn were both overpaid and under-performing veterans who seemed like their...

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 is that...
