Josh Johnson is a San Diego Padre

The deal includes an additional $1.25 million in performance bonuses if Johnson makes 26 starts, the source said. Johnson was in San Diego for a physical exam Tuesday and the contract is expected to be announced by the club Wednesday.
Interesting twist to Josh Johnson's $8M deal with Padres. If he makes fewer than seven starts, San Diego gets a $4M club option for 2015.

I don’t know what to say. Johnson said he was interested in playing either in San Francisco or San Diego, and Josh Byrnes actually listened.
What say you? Like it? Hate it? Wish Byrnes would drink the rest? You know what to do.
