Default A's DFA Jim Johnson

This actually happened yesterday.

101 saves in for the O's in 2012-3, but he's been pretty abysmal this year, allowing a 2.058 WHIP.

Assuming he clears waivers and is just outright released (both of which seem likely), it may not be unreasonable for the Sox to give him a flyer. Maybe Coop can work some magic, and it's not like he's going to be that much worse than a lot of the other bullpen dreck we've seen this year...

He's worth a gamble for close to the league minimum, as long as no players go back to Oakland.
