Joe Johnson: Completely Forgettable

blue jaysI'm featuring 1988 Topps Cards featuring members of my beloved Blue Jays that are featured on this blog.

If you don't remember Blue Jays righty Joe Johnson, you're forgiven. His MLB career was pretty short. He's awfully lucky he got a 1988 Topps card.

We actually traded Jim Acker to Atlanta to get Johnson. Acker came back to Toronto for a second tour of duty with the club in 1989. All in all, Acker was a Jay for parts of seven seasons and Joe Johnson was a Jay for 30 games over two seasons.

I don't have much to say but if Joe Johnson stumbles on this site I don't want him to feel bad with zero comments.

I love you Joe, whoever you were... I mean are....

Hi,
I actually know Joe now and he is a humble guy, I did not even know he was a pro ball player until sometime after I met him. I am not sure why his career was shortened but his numbers were not that bad, and 30 games for a pitcher is a little over a season. Thanks Ryan for the comment.

I played amature baseball against Joe and he carried himself with great dignity. I batted against him approximately 30 times and he never gave in to me,hitting me 15 times and my right forearm still hurts. A great competitor and a true humble gentlemen.
