    The Sox do have a few good Johnsons progressing thru the minors -- and I DON'T MEAN PRICKS!

    One of them (Eric) obviously pitched for Sox in Sept and held his own. He was very strong in AA and AAA this year, and could have a solid future.. Another is a 2b, Micah Johnson who's a tremendous speedster (stole 84 bases this yr). Nealy all that was in low A ball, but he struggled some in high A  and had a lot of trouble in his short stint in AA.  Probably too early to tell how well he'll develop - this year in AA will be a big determiner for him...
    Last is Michael Johnson, 24 year old who's played a lot of positions and he hit .280-ish in low A.  To be at that age and still in low A pretty much indicates he's not a prospect.
    Am I missing some other Johnson in the system ?

    I believe that you got them all, Roger.  I was primarily thinking of Erik and Micah Johnson - especially of Erik who has a good chance to move into the starting rotation next spring.
