This is by no means replacing Happy Roy Halladay Day, but Josh Johnson did me right last weekend when he beat the Nats 9-3 in Miami . JJ gets the Nationals again today in D.C., is 3-1 with a 3.16 era (if my fantasy baseball gurus have any feedback I’d love to hear it) but Johnson is a solid pitcher. I like the Fish too, they always have a young squad that is talented, baseball fans don’t know this because no goes to the games or cares about baseball in So. Florida. Partly because it is 105 degrees in July and people would rather lay on So. Beach than waste money at a baseball game, I don’t blame them. Johnson is a steady pitcher, he was 15-5 last year and 7-1 in just 14 starts in 2008. He gets thrown around as a sleeper for the CY Young each pre-season, he just needs the bats to back him up.
Taking Florida Marlins Jason Johnson (-180) vs Washington Nationals Matt Chico, 1:05 pm start
P.S. I just found out that the Marlins have cheerleaders (pictured left) called the Mermaids, this should be a requirement for every professional baseball team
