Right, I understand people didn't watch as many games last year, but to tune things out to the point that you can claim you've never heard of Erik Johnson is surprising. Johnson looked good when he pitched in September last year, and people were talking about him all year prior to the call-up based on his numbers in Birmingham and Charlotte.
