Just because the Josh Johnson experiment failed doesn’t mean it was the wrong move this past offseason.
Padre fans are annoyed and disappointed right now. I get it. Potential staff ace, Josh Johnson, needs Tommy John surgery and will not throw a pitch this year (and possibly ever) for the Padres.

Exercise Josh Johnson‘s 2015 option? Exercise it now when there’s news that he’s on his way to see Dr. James Andrews, likely putting an end to his 2014 season?
Before you dismiss this suggestion as the ravings of a lunatic (and is lunacy for no other reason than options don’t get picked up until the season ends and performance thresholds are met or missed), resist for but...

Then again, perhaps it was his elbow that he was getting checked. He had already had ligament replacement (Tommy John) surgery on it once before, in 2007, and Dr Andrews cleaned it up in October of last year...
Josh Johnson becomes the latest Padre pitcher to succumb to the injury bug. Johnson suffered a flexor strain in his right forearm; in a best-case scenario he’ll be back in 4-5 weeks according to Bud Black. Prior to the injury, Johnson had been enjoying a successful spring. Johnson signed a 1 year $8MM contract with the Padres during the offseason. However, the Padres get a $4 million...

Asked how miserable he was in a 2013 season in Toronto filled with arm pain and hard-hit balls, Josh Johnson chuckled and shook his head.
''Miserable might be an understatement,'' Johnson said Friday. ''It was like two innings and all of a sudden eight runs are on the board. I had no idea what was going on. It was crazy.''
The right-hander was able to crack a smile in part because...
