The Marlins are shelving Josh Johnson for the remainder of the season. Not surprising, since the Fish are 7 games out of the Wild Card with only 20 games left in the season. As Michael pointed out at Marlin Maniac the other day, the risk wasn't worth it, as the Marlins will be paying him many dollars for the 2011-2013 seasons. Letting him pitch his four remaining starts with lingering elbow and shoulder pain is not smart, no matter which way you slice it. The Marlins have officially thrown in the towel on the 2010 season, not that I blame them for doing so now.
