Roch Kubatko from MASN Sports joined the Vinny and Rob Show to talk about Jim Johnson’s struggles and his current standpoint with the rest of the team and Baltimore.
Roch is very curious to see who Buck will go with as the closer after the day off. Buck is never the type to announce a change so we’ll just have to wait and see who warms up in the bottom of the 8th. Roch’s opinion is that they should back off and do Jim Johnson a favor. His confidence may or may not be shaken but he’s forcing it.
Vinny says that Buck ought to change closers for the guys in the field. Frustration has to set in after playing 8 solid inning and going into the 9th winning, until Jim takes the mound.
The guys then discuss the options as to who could replace Jim while he gets his head back on straight. K-Rod or Tommy Hunter are very good options.
