Analyzing the Josh Johnson Gamble

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

Josh Johnson needs a second Tommy John surgery

Signing pitcher Josh Johnson to a one-year, $8 million contract was viewed as a savvy offseason move for the Padres. If the right-hander stayed healthy, San Diego could have an ace-caliber starter for about one-third the price of what a No. 1 starter typically costs on the open market nowadays. Unfortunately, Johnson won’t have thrown a single regular-season pitch for the Padres...

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. 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 hoping to rebound in '14 with Padres

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...
