Nick Johnson To Sign With Yankees

Multiple reports have the Yankees on the verge of signing Nick Johnson to a one year contract for $5 to $6 million. This is, essentially, Rich Harden 2.0 – a player the M’s could have used signing a good value contract with another AL club. On the surface, it’s disappointing.

But, you know what, the M’s have earned the benefit of the doubt. If they didn’t bid up Nick Johnson, they are probably pretty confident in the alternatives. I think we all are enjoying the guy we got instead of Harden, after all.

So, yeah, I would have liked to have Nick Johnson, but this doesn’t change my expectation that the team will find a quality first baseman this winter.

    [off-topic] Its also kind of a bummer about Nick Johnson but I imagine they will end up signing Russell Branyan to another 1 year deal.

    If anyone can relate a msg to Jack Z, let him know to take Lee to Puyallup and take him to the Sonic there.

    Which Sonic? Steve Scheffler?
