I kept hearing that Josh Johnson lost something off his fastball and now throws in only about the 88-90 MPH range, where as in his domination years, he was throwing around 93-95MPH.
Josh Johnson risk checklist:
Injury History - Check
Decrease in "stuff" - check
Moved to an American League hitters park that punishes RH Pitching - check
Wasn't even really dominant the previous year - Check
I am a blue jays fan but I wouldn't gamble with JJ unless I got outstanding value. But he's going for the 10-15 dollar mark and I'm going to pass. No pitcher with 4 checkmarks should be paid for with double digits.
