what are they like defensively?
offensively they seem like the same player. power, low AVG, and some speed.
would the Jays be hoping to resign Johnson after the season? because he can be a free agent.
Hill has this contract details.http://mlbcontracts.blogspot.com/2005/0 ... ys_05.html

* 08:$0.41M, 09:$2.59M, 10:$4M, 11:$5M, 12:$8M club option, 13:$8M club option, 14:$10M club option
* club may decide to exercise all 3 options before 2011 season
* after 2011 season, club may exercise only 2012 and 2013 options
shouldn't the Jays have been able to get something else with Johnson? Hill and McDonald for Johnson.
if Hill can bounce back and the Jays do not resign Johnson, looks like the Jays could losing this one.
