Bounty, sorry to come off condenscending in my original response. Looking back at my post I owe you an apology.
No worries Buckeye, and in the end, what any of us think doesn't matter anyway in the big picture. I agre with your points above, but also think Johnson had the benfit of years of stockpiling high drafts picks which obviously helped build a good team for years to come now. I dont think Johnson was a bad pick by any means and admit my homerism thought Dusty should have got it, esp after the bullpen injuries, and mainly doing so well when Votto went down.
