    Let the calls of armageddeon begin.

    Need anymore proof how much we, as Padre fans, overrated Ben Johnson?

    I still don't get it, though..

    I'll save an opinion for when the offseason is over.

    I heard yesterday that this trade announcement was gonna include a Aztec baseball alumni and it does-Royce Ring. He was a pretty good pitcher for the Aztecs, if I recall.

    One of my friends thats a girl thinks that they are trading Ben off to make room to resign Dave Roberts. Dunno about that. From all indications, they are letting him roam the FA waters...

    The only way Ben Johnson becomes a Superstar is if all right handed starting pitchers are moved to the bullpen and every team in the National League, other than the Mets, goes with an all left handed rotation.

    I got you.

    I know that Ben is not the best player out thre but to me he is a Super Star.

    I am a huge fan of his. Ben Johnson is in my opinion an excellent defensive outfielder. He is I know not all that good with his bat. Ben is just exciting to watch out there on the field.

    That is just my opinion.
