    Jason Johnson DFA'd

    I gotta believe we'd be interested. Hes been pretty bad in Clev. but a 2-1 gb/fb ratio interests me.

    Career 229 213 55 94 0 6 1 1289.2 1437 781 709 172 473 768 4.95 1.48 .282

    These are his career stats, all of which are in the AL, besides 3 relief appearances in his firsy year (97) with the Pirates, not too bad, but not great, yet a change to the NL may be good to him, he's pitched in some tough AL divisions. Johnson is also locally known, he graduated from Conner High School, in Hebron KY. He is worth a chance given he is a good groundball pitcher and is stron local ties may help put more people in the stands.

    I've always liked him, and I've been surprised by how much he's struggled the last few seasons. He's a good guy to take a chance on, as long as someone else is paying most of his salary.

    Reds Motto of Pitching -

    Pass. I'm not sure he's any better than Joe Mays.

    The Red Sox are more in need of starters than we are. Nice to be able to say that for a change.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    If Jason Johnson's thinks pitching poorly in Cleveland is bad, just wait until Red Sox Nation gets a hold of him...or any left-handed power hitter.

    Did the Tribe & Sox trade out DFA's?

    That's a good starting point. If they throw in Ted Williams' head, I'm sold on this deal.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
