Nick Johnson

For all of you out there who've been dreaming of Nick Johnson's smooth glove and .400 OBP swooping in to solve our 1B muddle, kiss those dreams goodbye. With the injury to Carlos Delgado to create a bidding war between the Mets and Yanks, and the risk of an ineffective Dmitri Young, I don't think Johnson is worth the prospects the Nats will demand for their only established hitter.

A diabetic, Young weighed 298 pounds when he reported to camp in February. He's missed the past five days because of a strained muscle in his side, and The Washington Post reported Wednesday that some team officials are disappointed in his physical condition.
