Quote of the day: Elijah, Passover, and Josh Johnson

Leave a comment

“I’d be less surprised if Elijah showed up at my parents’ house this
Passover than if they trade him before the start of the season.”

– Josh Johnson’s agent Matt Sosnick, during an interview with FOXSports.com.
According to two sources with knowledge of the club’s intentions, the
Marlins do not plan to trade the 25-year-old right-hander this
offseason.

Okay, unless the Messiah suddenly appears, I swear this is my last Josh Johnson post for a while.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
