Johnson a better option than Newhan

At Rotoworld, writes about David Newhan and they feel that Ben Johnson is a better fit for than the bench:

Free agent David Newhan is likely to sign with the Mets, according to SI.com's Jon Heyman.

It's got to be a minor league deal. The Mets already have four locks for the bench in Endy Chavez, Julio Franco, Damion Easley and Ramon Castro, and Ben Johnson is a far better option as a fifth outfielder than Newhan, a career .256/.315/.386 hitter.
