    I believe ABTY chimed in regarding getting Johnson ONLY. That was unrealistic to think he would go cheaply just because the Cubs took JJ's salary. But taking Beuhrle too is another story. I doubt they get those two pitchers too, but there is no way a team takes on all the salary and gives up a player like Baez. Something like 2 of anyone after the top 4 and another high reward guy not in the top 20 list should be enough. If not, then they pass on dealing with the Marlins.

    With the megadeal between Miami and Toronto I guess we can close the book on Johnson playing in Cubbie blue.

    You never know. If he suffers through an injury plagued 2013, we'll definitely be after him next off season.

    If he suffers through ANOTHER injury plagued season, I would say that only decreases the chances of the Cubs going after him.

    If he stays healthy, he'll be expensive. That would go against the plan.
