It didn't take Reed Johnson long to top last year's diving grab -- arguably the catch of the year -- against the Washington Nationals.
''I've never robbed a homer before,'' Johnson told reporters. ''I told him (Fielder) at first the next inning, 'I know you don't want to hear this, but that's the first time I've ever done that.'''
With his gritty play and no-nonsense approach to the game, Johnson is no doubt a fan favorite in Chicago. Depending how long Bradley (right groin strain) is out, fans might get a chance to see him a lot more.
If he keeps coming up with big plays, that should work out just fine for the Cubs.
