It was a real shame that Johnson got hit last night in the foot. I read this morning that the split he did caused him to now worry about his knee. His command wasnt the same after. He was rolling along at that point too. They way he looked I thought he was going to casue a great debate on who starts in the playoffs. Tilman and Gonzo are locks. Hammel if healthy would be the 3rd...If Johnson finished up tonight they way he started, who would of beeen the 4th? Everything has been working out for us but i would of really liked to of seen him pitch most of the August and Sept in the rotation.

Johnson has looked a little shaky the third time through the order. Once the league gets a better look at him he will probably find a home as the long man (only has to go through the order once or twice) and do that very effectively.
