The Probably Top Indication Josh Johnson Is Classical Scholar

Socrates Johnson

The top indication that major-league right-hander Josh Johnson is a classical scholar used to be the paper he wrote on the theme of sal (or “wit”) in the work of the Neoteric poets and which appeared in the Autumn, 2007, edition of the American Journal of Philology.

Now, however, the top indication that Josh Johnson is a classical scholar is the fantasy update from today that’s pictured above — which fantasy update reports that, not unlike the Socrates of Plato’s Apologia, Johnson is committed to perpetual examination of the self.

Credit to reader David Internet Jacobs for spying the source material here with his (one presumes) regularly sized eye.

    I am very disappointed to find no such article in said edition of the American Journal of Philology. Next, presumably, you’re going to start writing about baseball caps available on eBay that will turn out to be not actually available on eBay.

    His parents are Canucks. Chances are it’s in the Canadian Journal of Philology instead.

    Johnson looked like, and actually was one of the few elite pitchers, from the years to 2006 to 2012. Having seen him pitch more than a few times when 100%, he was filthy. He threw 95 to 98 with a great off-speed pitch and crazy curve that he underused.

    Sad that he never had a full healthy season to show what he could do.
