Disregard that speculation: Josh Johnson is a Padre

Well that didn't take long: Jerry Crasnick is reporting tonight that Josh Johnson has signed a one-year/$8 million contract with the Padres. Since Johnson previously said that he wanted to sign with the Padres or Giants to be closer to his Las Vegas home, I don't think there's too much to read into here; Johnson wanted to sign closer to home and one of the teams close to his hometown wanted him. It seems silly to wonder if the Pirates could've done more here.

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
