O’s in the Spos

In Expos Reminisce, Last Expo Standing on February 26, 2012 at 10:33 pm

After parting ways with free agent and potential Hall of Famer Vlad Guerrero , the Orioles seemed to be done with the Expos. However, they have recently signed 1b Nick Johnson to a minor league deal. Johnson last appeared in the majors in 2010 while batting .167 in 98 PA’s for the Yankees. The former 2004 Expos won’t be new to the Baltimore/Maryland area as he enjoyed arguably his best seasons in the nation’s capital upon moving there with the franchise in 2005 and 2006. Johnson is a career .209 playoff hitter in 76 PA’s with the ’02 and ’03 Yanks. With a career .409 OBP he appeared heading for stardom, but Johnson has been riddled with injuries and has yet to make an all-star appearance. Meanwhile, Guerrero continues to be bypassed by all A.L. teams in need of a DH.
