If they keep it up, the Marlins' bullpen could cost Josh Johnson millions. Johnson is presently 4-1 with a 2.66 ERA, but he has made quality starts in nine of 11 outings. His record doesn't reflect just how well he has pitched, in part because of middling run support (4.3 runs per game), but in larger part due to his bullpen.
