Just the other day, I was speaking to someone about how I was convinced the Blue Jays were going to stand pat this offseason. Despite the fact that the club clearly had gaping holes in their roster, my cynical side thought the Blue Jays were going to do anything but make a splash.
Clearly, I was very wrong. More on the blockbuster trade over at BJH.
Blue looks like a natural colour for Josh Johnson.
The Blue Jays have 4 of their 5 starting pitchers locked up through the 2015 season. Should they go 5 for 5 and sign Josh Johnson to a contract extension as well?

The night after a 3-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians, there are some burning questions in Blue Jays Land.
Who is the real Josh Johnson? Should the Blue Jays move Brett Lawrie to second base? Is the time now to cash in on Casey Janssen? And where do babies come from?
He towers the mound at 6’7”. He weighs in at 250 pounds. His fastball velocity clocks in at 93 miles per hour. He possesses a wipeout slider. He’s a former NL ERA champion and two-time All-Star starting pitcher.
Josh Johnson certainly has all the makings of an ace, but for whatever reason, he just hasn’t been able to put it all together with the Toronto Blue Jays this season.
What is the future of Josh Johnson and the Blue Jays?
