Josh Johnson needs to seek better advice

Don't know if saw the game yesterday but when Josh Johnson was at the plate he hit a blooper and just stood at home plate.

Johnson was nearly thrown out from left field after he dumped a single in the top of the sixth inning. After he swung, Johnson was looking around, thinking he’d fouled the ball off.

"I was looking around, them (Phillies catcher Paul) Bako goes, ‘Yeah, it’s foul.’ As soon as he said that, I saw the ball (in left field) and I took off running,’’ Johnson said.

He shared a laugh with first baseman Ryan Howard, who said: "High school ball!’’’…

Josh, buddy, don't seek advice from the other team's catcher, they lie.  Oh well, lesson learned and no harm was caused.
