Josh Johnson: Dominant.

Johnson's line doesn't even come close to displaying just how dominant he was against the Mets today. Simply put, the Mets had no chance against Johnson. He masterfully mixed his overpowering fastball with his ridiculously filthy slider and made Mets hitters look absolutely terrible. He was consistently getting ahead of hitters and making the Mets swing at his pitches, which were unhittable.

If Johnson stays healthy this season, it would not surprise me to see him make the all-star team and perhaps establish himself as a darkhorse CY Young award candidate.

Yes, I am officially chugging the Josh Johnson cool-aid. Look for big things from Johnson this season.
