Colorado Rockies trade anniversary: Trading Charles Johnson to Boston

In their short history, Charles Johnson, in just two seasons, was the best catcher that the Colorado Rockies had up to that point.

At the end of spring training in 2005, though, the Colorado Rockies traded away Johnson and minor leaguer Chris Narveson to the Red Sox for pitcher Byung-hyun Kim and cash.

Johnson, who was entering his age 33 season, was acquired by the Rockies in November of 2002 from the Florida Marlins along with reliever Vic Darensbourg, utility man Pablo Ozuna, and outfielder Preston Wilson for starter Mike Hampton, outfielder Juan Pierre, and cash.
