Johnson is not in today's starting lineup. I'm told he'll catch two games out of three in Cleveland, but, unless Kenji Johjima gets hurt or Washburn goes deep in the game and Johnson pinch-hits for someone -- a highly unlikely occurence -- then the "reunion'' with former battery-mate Washburn is not going to happen.
I like to think that Kenji hasn't been struggling so much as he's been saving all his hits for today.
