Marlins Acquire Nick Johnson
The Marlins finally showed some trade deadline sac and ordered one large Johnson.
Washington National 1B Nick Johnson, he of the .295 average, 44 RBI, and most importantly for the free-swinging Fish, a .408 on-base-percentage, is heading to the Land of Teal and Empty Seats for AA left-hander Aaron Thompson, according to FoxSports.com.
Which probably means Cantu is going back to third, and Bonifacio will be platooning in left with Coghlan.
Celebration? Or too little too late?
