REED JOHNSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Reed Johnson thankful for childhood influence from Tony Gwynn

No guarantees: Non-roster invitees know they must make impression

JUPITER, Fla. -- Eleven seasons spent in the big leagues with the same routine. Then, one offseason, only minor-league deals come around with an invitation to spring training. For veteran position players in this situation, old habits must be adjusted in order to win a spot not guaranteed to them. A track record will only go so far.

Smile Though My Heart Is Breaking

Reed Johnson is 33 for 96 lifetime against the New York Mets. It's no wonder that Johnson had the smile that you see to the right on his face before facing Josh Edgin in the sixth inning. Two pitches later: FWACK ... two run single 4-1 Marlins, ballgame. He's no Larry Jones, but I guess as far as Met-killers go, he'll have to do. And if he continues smiling like this he'll be...

Reed Johnson Could Be Good Match In Sox OF

(Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)There are some guys in major league baseball you just have to like—even though they've never donned Carmine Hose.
