Steve Johnson did something no other O's young pitchers could do

.....he trusted his stuff and attacked the zone.

I really really really look forward to watching him going forward. 1st inning was such a joy to watch!! I love the strikeouts too!

Great game, he looked great! Only mistake was that 2 run homer but other than that he was outstanding.

We have some good Johnson's on our staff ;)

This kid did everything he was supposed to tonight, and everything anyone could have asked him to. He EARNED his opportunity and then took advantage of it.

His dad has every reason to be very proud of him.

Just a reminder, he's only 24. That Sherill trade is looking a whole lot better these days.

It's amazing that Johnson looks to be more valuable than Bell and the trade continues to give value with Belfiore looking like he can help next year.

I can't believe they don't have a video of Johnson's start in the game recap @ orioles.com/news. Maybe they'll have it in the morning.

Tommy Hunter trusts his stuff and attacks the zone every start. We-Yin Chen trusts his stuff and attacks more often than not too.

When we made that trade I told my son that I thought that Johnson would be better player of the two. That's why I was FURIOUS when MacPhail allowed him to be Rule 5 drafted by the Giants.
