What To Do With Your Johnson

Ha.  No seriously, now that Dunn is slated to start every day at first base, Nick Johnson has said he will not accept a bench role.  Well, of course the Nationals will try to trade him, but if they can’t, is he going to refuse to play?  I could see a scenario where the injury bug bites us, Dunn moves to the outfield, and Johnson goes back to first base.  He’s good insurance to have.  There would probably be a pinch hitting situation for him every game at some point, but that’s not a lot of at bats.  Hopefully we can get something decent for him in a trade.  But it may take some time because he needs to prove to everyone, including those outside the Nationals’ organization, that he is healthy and can perform at a high level again.  If that happens, he should bring back something decent in a trade.
