Versus a just as bad Mets team who is throwing a ROOKIE out.
This line screams lack of respect for JJ.
We know the Marlins have packed it in but when he is on the mound
he should give them a great chance to win.
This line should be -175 IMO.
I see 85% on ML and 83% on RL for MIAMI. Line has not moved to -141.
Are you f*cking kidding me. 
Let me throw this in too...
JJ is 8-2 lifetime vs Mets ERA 2.70 and WHIP 1.14.

Johnson is 7-11 with a 4.00 ERA and he was brutal in his last start. Apart from a bad start against the best team in the majors, Hefner has a 1.74 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in August.

Who knows what will happen but I think this line is fairly accurate.

JJ has sucked this year. Who gives a garbage how he has pitched against the Mets before his injury last year. He has pitched against them twice this year with one good outing and one half behind. He has lost his last four decisions with a 4.88 over that span

Tough to factor that one in since it was against the 40-92 Astros.
