He pitched dominantly in the majors and minors, far better than any of Britton, Arrieta, and Matusz. Steve Johnson deserves it, throw out the damn spring training stats.
If I were making the decisions I would either trade Arrieta for Olt or I would send him to Norfolk to finish his development. I would make Steve Johnson the 5th SP and McFarland the long guy IF he holds up tomorrow.
Before anyone has their head explode over this I would like to remind you that we will probably be hitting the Reset Button in a month or so as Jurrjens and one of the "Cavalry" show they're ready.
