Right place, right time

Reed Johnson was in right field at the right time for the Cubs Sunday night. Johnson was subbing for Milton Bradley, who had to leave the game in the fourth because of a right groin strain. The Brewers had the bases loaded and none out in the fifth when Prince Fielder launched a ball to right. Johnson made a perfectly timed leaping catch at the wall and robbed Fielder of a grand slam. And Fielder, to his credit, tipped his batting helmet to Johnson as he walked off the field.

I was amazed by Fielder’s attitude! Now I feel kind of bad for booing him all night at Miller Park last night…

Oh, and of course buy Johnson’s superhuman catch!

Reed Johnson won both games in Milwaukee for the Cubs. As everyone celebrates Soriano’s HR, it would of only tied the game without Johnson’s hit before him, and stealing a grandslam?? Is there any bigger defensive play in baseball? Rock on Reed!!!
