    Unless he physically pushes him.

    He's fat.

    A lot of that might just be that he's gassed. He's thrown an AWFUL lot of pitches in 4 innings. Lots of that is just him catching his breath and settling himself down.

    That being said, there's still a world of difference between Hanny and Mes behind the dish.

He hadn't really broken out yet as it were, but if you watched him day in and day out you could see it. I'll be shocked if Francisco ever pushes him out of the starters role.
    Hate to disagree, but Johnson does not currently have the starters role.

    Francisco and Johnson basically platoon.

    Francisco, however, has had injuries this season. Right now he is out with an ankle sprain.

    Juan has good numbers this year. His OPS+ is 117.

    Nice AB there from Cozart. Especially after getting down 0-2.

    this pitcher rarely throws strikes, everything sinks out of the zone just before the plate.

    Really? I'm really surprised by that. I just looked at Juan's numbers...not too shabby. But I'm clearly higher on Johnson than most.

    Sorry buddy but I think 2 plus 2 equals 5 and I don't care how many people disagree with me.

    That's not even close to being analogous to my point, but whatever, enjoy yourself.
