Cafardo shares the love for Chris Johnson

Nick Cafardo's Sunday Column has a nice little shout-out to Chris Johnson:

The son of Sox first base coach Ron Johnson is developing into a very good player. With veteran Pedro Feliz on the team, the Astros took a while to commit to Johnson, but since the All-Star break, he has been at or near the top in the NL in OPS, batting average, RBIs, and slugging. “He just keeps throwing out hits and keeps getting big hits, so I bumped him up a little bit to fifth," said manager Brad Mills. “He’s making it tough to leave him in that [sixth] spot."

Except for last night, when he was dropped to 7th.
