He has the stuff and command to succeed and could be a solid #3, I think.
Should he stay or go?

A_K wrote:While I don't necessarily see why it'd be true that Johnson would now become a good starter, I have to say it seems odd to see so many people express confusion over a team moving a struggling young starter to the bullpen, then looking to move him back to the rotation after he experiences a few years of success in the bullpen. Isn't that a pretty common story on a year-to-year basis in baseball, as well as an historically proven system within this very franchise?
