BASEBALL: Nick The Sick

Nick Johnson's hurt again, and this time it's back trouble, which underlines the fact that the Expos got jobbed. Johnson was a great prospect once, but I foresee a career that looks more like Cliff Floyd or JD Drew than Jeff Bagwell or Jim Thome. Which is still useful, but no Hall of Famer. (The downside is if the back trouble eats into his power).

On another, neither here-nor-there note, the Baseball News Blog now links to us as "Baseball Frank." Can I get that on a bun?

With the Expos in the shape they're in then if he were Jim Thome Jeff Bagwell he's just be gone the season before he was available for free agency anyway.
