The Chris Johnson Report

by Bill Chuck on September 3, 2013

Perhaps its because the Braves are rolling comfortably to the NL East divisional championship or perhaps its because he was the “throw-in” in the Justin Upton for Martin Prado trade in January, but nobody is talking about the fact that after going 2-for-4 in yesterday’s Braves 13-4 thrashing of Daisuke Matsuzaka and the Mets, Chris Johnson upped his NL leading batting average to .334.
