I like the signing. Here in New England, I heard his name for years as the next top Red Sox slugger on the horizon. It might mean something though that Theo didn't go after him since he was probably one of his draft selections.

Speaking of Johnson, can you think of another instance where a guy hits three home runs in a game and is then released by the club before playing again?

Right, Lars flamed out and he was probably 100x the prospect Barnum is

It'll be a lot longer than 2 years for Barnum. I like him, but he won't be so quick.

Why would Theo go after Anderson when he's already got a younger, better option in Rizzo?

I didn't realize Theo also drafted Rizzo in Boston. He liked big lefties.
