Josh Johnson signs with the Marlins; four years, $39 million


That gun the union put to the Marlins’ head has paid quick dividends for Josh Johnson, who just had his arbitration and two years of free agency bought out by Florida, to the tune of four years, $39 million.

Johnson turns 26 later this month.  He was 15-5 with a 3.23 ERA, 1.16
WHIP and 191/58 K/BB ratio in 33 starts with the Marlins last season. He’s a keeper.

This is how it’s supposed to work, Marlins fans. Welcome to the land of the living.
