Kris Johnson for him? Sure thing, Minnesota. Johnson being a lefty actually hurt his chances in Pittsburgh with Watson & Wilson already there and he was never going to be a realistic starting candidate...plus we got the guy as a minor league free agent to begin with, so...yeah.


Josh Johnson makes a ton of sense as a Pirates target. There's tons of upside there and his value is at a low point...but he's still going to demand a pretty contract. He's a 29/30 year-old who's a year removed from being ace caliber. I'd like it in part because it'd be following what happened in my MLB 13 franchise
