I wanted to get this up quickly and I’ll add more to it later. But manager John McLaren said that Jeff Clement will start Thursday night’s game against Cleveland at catcher. McLaren is going to sit struggling starter Kenji Johjima for the next two games to try and get him to relax a little.
Johjima was clearly not pleased, saying that sitting has never helped him get out of a slump and that it would only make him put more pressure on himself to do better.
I’ll post more on this later. I have to write my game story.
