This is what I was referring to. As it stands we have no one on the bench who can hit for power. Pretty much what you hope for with our pinch hitters is that they can come in, hit a single, and then maybe someone else can drive them in. Flowers doesn't count.
I never meant to imply that he's some savior or a great player, but he is a left handed bat capable of hitting a homerun. He's also been doing pretty well in AAA. Given the option of having either Hudson or him coming off the bench, I'd much rather have Johnson.
