Are the Mariners going to be prone to the "Johnson Effect?"


Seeing this article on Beyond the Box Score made me wonder about whether the M's will be prone to the same effect in 2010. Clearly, all things are not equal, as the Mariners have added premium talent. There was a post on the front page a while back that brought up that the Mariners actually underperformed their expectations, so the Pythag W-L doesn't accurately portray the talent level. This certainly is interesting. Any thoughts?
