As Adam Wolff said "its just a bresh of fresh air seeing these guys (Johnson, Gonzalez) succeed when our 'top prospects' aren't. Not saying these guys will have better careers in the long run than our 'can't miss guys (Arrieta, Britton)' but these guys are throwing well now and DERSERVE every chance to be in the rotation.
It all comes down to, as Buck calls it, "want to". Johnson and Gonzalez give you every bit of their talent; limited as it may be. Arrieta, Matusz, and Tillman have held themselves back more than any other factor. If just ONE of those three took the same approach as Steve or Miguel the whole league would be talking about them.
