Red Bull gives Reed Johnson wings.

I'm not sure if he drinks Red Bull, but from his diving-towards-the-outfield-fence catch yesterday in the bottom of the 5th against the Nats, it looks like he might. Did anyone else see this??? This was the catch of the season. Anyone else looking to flash the leather to impress had better just pack it in. That's it. Game's over. I know what you're thinking. "It's a good catch, but who the hell is Reed Johnson?!?" I'm glad you asked. He is an outfielder for the Cubs (filling in for the injured Soriano and splitting time with Felix Pie...mmmmm....pie....). The reason you have never heard of him, my friend, is because he has played in Toronto his whole career (since 2003) and he has a .280 career average. Don't be surprised if he starts showing up on those poorly animated Red Bull commercials soon...

This was one of the more amazing catches...another catch that is much more amazing than May's over the shoulder catch.
