There's a perception that the no-hitter ruined Johan and I think that's inaccurate. He had two starts right after the no-hitter that were poor but then he had 3 good ones in a row. His effectiveness ended when he sprained his ankle during the July 6 game against the Cubs, specifically in the top of the 5th when Reed Johnson stepped on his ankle. He got bombed the rest of the inning and his season.
Team isn't doing anything this year anyway. Only problem is we can't trade him for another prospect at the deadline.
Feel horrible for him though. All that hard work to get back and have to end up back at square one. I will be a fan forever because of game 161 in 2008 (if Reyes doesn't piss off the Marlins, who knows what happens) and 6/1/12'a no hitter. That was a great night.
i dont know about anyone else, but i didnt expect much from him this year...there was an outside chance he was going to pitch well in which case i hoped they could flip him to a contender for a prospect...thats about it.
