Jim Johnson Today, 2013

Recommended Posts

His control and velocity are a cause for some concern. Hopefully he can bounce back next time. As for tomorrow' date=' we'll ride Hammel and the hot bats to victory.[/quote']

His velocity was down last year in ST and everyone was concerned. He's been 91-93 so far from what I can see, so yeah, he's still not in top form, where he's pumping some 95's and 96's in there.

We should keep in mind that's its still pretty chilly. He'll add 3-4 mph in the couple of weeks.

I did not see the first six innings on TV but heard a lot of it on the radio. The ump appeared to squeeze O'Day and JJ the last two innings and was giving the corners to the Twins pitchers. Reservations somewhere?

Brian Dozier of the Minnesota Twins was just interviewed by the guys on Intentional Talk, he was asked who the pitcher he hates facing the most is, quickly replied with "Jim Johnson... sinker, man."

Something to that effect. It was nice to hear. So many pundits believe that Jim Johnson's season was a fluke last year because of his low strikeout rate, so this was nice to hear!

    • Seems just like the old SG to take a few quotes and then start bashing our FO and ownership for "dumb" things. IMO, the most telling quote in the link was also the one ME explained.  The revenue situation is uncertain.  ME is quoted as saying, "We can't estimate our revenue, our attendance ....  We can't estimate various things that we look at when we look at a player or roster budget."  In light of such uncertainty, it is quite a leap to say the FO is dumb for not pursuing a particular player - in this case, Stroman.  Most prudent, well-run businesses would operate in such as manner given the uncertainty. There are multiple ways to save $ with Chris Davis including his negotiating a settlement for possible retirement, a shortened season, etc.  All of these things are more important today than opening up Davis' roster spot.  Let's see what happens.  
    • Also, if we keep Cobb through the winter, we will need the spot for rule 5 protection.
    • It is a happy fact that I think the Orioles will be good enough next year that they won’t need him. They need good infield defense and he doesn’t provide that.
    • Some final defensive numbers: Rtot: +15 (6th in MLB) Rdrs: -3 (19th in MLB)  UZR: -5.4 (21st in MLB) Fangraphs defense: -4.4 (21st in MLB)  Fielding %: .980 (27th in MLB) Overall, a bit better than last year but below average unless you want to believe Rtot.

    • The first tiebreaker was division record, even though they played in different divisions.  I guess since all games were East vs East, Central vs Central, West vs West... Division record = league record. If that was tied then it was record in final 20 division (league) games. If that was tied then record in final 21 div games, the. 22, the n23, and so on. Kind of silly but those are the rules.  
    • The mound is 66’ 9” from second base.
