    The Mets need someone to cover for Alou while he's out. Any pitching prospects?

    Though the Blue Jays have denied it, scouts at the Blue Jays game Saturday said Reed Johnson is currently on waivers.
    Johnson would be out of a job in Toronto if Shannon Stewart is chosen for a role as a part-time outfielder. The Jays have been attempting to trade him.

    Financially it makes sense- Reed was going to make twice the money that Stewart will make.

    Neither of them are ideal corner outfielders.

    Kind of sucks, I do like him, but I was ok with him leaving, but I thought it was going to be through a trade, I guess they could not find a trade for him, you would think they could have at least got a pick or two for him...............I dont think it will take long for him to get on a team, he's just what some teams need, you know your getting 150% every game from Reed.

    I hope this does not come back to bite them in the ass.

    I'm going to miss Reed, but I guess I understand why they did this...not sure why they didn't hang onto him for a month or two when someone might go down and need a guy like Reed who can play CF, bat leadoff, etc. - basically very surprised they just released him for nada.

    Same here. Maybe he just didn't want to stick around. I mean, if I gave my heart to a team and they treated me like that, I think I'd go elsewhere, too.

    Rolen broke a finger today, sounds like he wont be ready for opening day now, Scutaro will take his spot while he's out.

    Trade one bandaid 3b for another and this was bound to happen, before the season is embarassing though

    Twoonie Tuesday dudes, I'm telling you! (the seats aren't great, but the atmosphere is!)

    Re: flex packs, I always find it easy enough to get tickets gameday, so I never both with flex packs as you never know if something will come up on a day you have a ticket - I'd rather play a scalper $5-10 more and buy tickets day of...but that's just me!

    agreed here, I've never had an issue getting tickets at the gate. Plus I don't like having to be committed like you would if yu bought a flex pack.

    Once again agreed on the Toonie Tuesday thing, they're easily the funnest games of the year.

    I looked into it and the only seats left for decent games are terrible, so it's not really an option.

    That did not take long, Reed Johnson signed a one year deal with the Cubs.

    Johnson lost that spot when they got Eckstein. Stewart will be batting near the bottom. I think it was more than economical. Don't be surprised to see Johnson hit the DL sometime this season.
