Do you guys think Josh Johnson will be as nasty as before when he gets back off the DL (target date June 1st)?

I don't. Johnson has had arm troubles in the past and i thought they were gonna re appear last year, they just came back this season. I could see him going back on the DL later on this season, but thats just my opinion on JJ

oh yeah, he's a stud with that, um ... fastball,
and some mediocre secondary stuff.

just because you picked him up from waivers and got lucky doesn't mean he's an ace by any means.

I have to admit, i did pick him up and throw him on the DL - we'll see is my attitude.

You are absolutely right, they don't lie. What they tell me is that his ERA disguised a very mediocre WHIP, which leads me to believe that he was rather lucky last year. Add in the fact that his numbers in the minors were actually pretty poor for a supposed "stud" (3.70ERA, and a horrendous 1.43WHIP), and I believe you got a little (OK, a lot) starstruck by one category...

If he does come off the DL anytime soon, I would expect something along the lines of 170K, 3.80ERA, 1.35WHIP at best (for a full season, of course...)
