The A's released Jim Johnson

Up is down, and down is up post incoming (praising of Butcher)


Have the Halos take a chance on him?

Hey, look at the bullpen development this season.

The guy is a GB machine.    Just needs to return to being the control guy he used to be. 


Even if he's stored at AAA through August, and called up in September if showing a semblance of the old Jim Johnson


Okay, I am probably rambling.    It's crazy though how much he fell this season, while still only 31.

It's not like he ever had crazy good stuff.  A late innings reliever that didn't really strike guys out a relied heavily on the ground ball.  That's just opportune for a stretch of bad luck and if the fastball stops sinking a bit then he is really screwed.  Looks like what happened.

You would have to get rid of someone in the bullpen to bring him in. I wouldn't mess with what is working. I doubt he signs with someone on a minor league contract. There are teams out there that need bullpen help that will offer him a major league contract.
