Astros interested in Kelly Johnson

Infielder Kelly Johnson, formerly of the Atlanta Braves, are getting some love from the Astros (as well as the Pirates, Cardinals, and Diamondbacks).

I'll admit, I don't see it. The Astros already have Maysonet, Matsui, and Keppinger. If the Astros were to flip Matsui for a bucket of sunflower seeds, and install Johnson at 2B, however, that's a different story. But to add another second baseman just to do it doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
