LA Detective wrote:There are a lot of innings in that arm over the last couple of years. Plus due to a lot of close games early in the season we had to use him more often than liked. I think he is more tired than anything. Thus, causing him to get our of sync with his delivery. I would say spread some of the innings between the others and maybe he can come back from the break fresh. I think he will be fine but I think the days of 3 in a row or 4 or 5 times a week are not the best going forward.

I like Jim Johnson as a player but Johnson is struggling, the whole world knows that. It's time for another alternative and perhaps Jim can pick up the pieces before it's too late for this season.
