Then, the comments began:  — What a stupid contract! — Same old, cheap Padres...

Exercise Josh Johnson’s 2015 Option Now!

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...

99 Josh Johnson Problems

Reports surfaced yesterday that the Padres Josh Johnson, signed as a free agent over the winter, would be seeking a second opinion from Dr James Andrews on his injured forearm.

Josh Johnson’s Contract With the Padres

The news is breaking now. It seems that Josh Johnson has gotten $8 million dollars from the Padres to pitch in 2014, according to Jerry Crasnick. By itself, that is an interesting match — Johnson gets to go to the National League and reboot his value in a pitcher’s park, and the Padres get a high-variance player for a little bit more than the price of a win. But then I heard...
