I'm basing it on this article:
And yes, partly on his +/- as well. Doughty goes against the best players too, and he's +14 to Johnson's -18.
That's not to say that Johnson won't be better than both Rozy and Girardi in a couple years. I guess the question is, does Lombardi believe that Johnson will continue to progress defensively?
I haven't seen him play outside games against the Rangers, so maybe I'm completely off base. I just thought it might be an avenue worth exploring.
