Chipper wants to trade for Josh Johnson

Here’s the moment of the day:: The Braves were taking BP Thursday afternoon and Fredi Gonzalez was meeting with the media in the dugout  when Chipper Jones walked over to the Marlins dugout and shouted to Fredi: “What’s the odds on us trading for Josh Johnson? We’ll take Volstad, too.’’

Fredi just laughed, but everyone knows how good the Marlins young starters are. Johnson pitched a four-hit complete game against Chipper and the Braves Wednesday and Chris Volstad has one of the best young arms in the game.

                        

It’s Florida’s final game in Atlanta, and the Marlins can pick up ½ a game on the Mets, who are idle, before meeting the Amazin’s Friday in the House that Joe Robbie Built. They also have a chance to gain ground on the Phillies, who face Ryan Dempster and the Cubs tonight in Chicago

Jeremy Hermida is back in the lineup after missing four starts in a row, but Luis Gonzalez is also starting. Gonzo is hitting second and playing left field.

Dan Uggla, who was dropped to seventh in the lineup on Wednesday, is still hitting seventh after a big night in which he doubled and homered.
