Of those, only EJ has "pace", and that's where JK played him after taking all kinds of crap for calling him up at all.
In a vacuum, no one would care about Eddie Johnson being called up. People are angry because Juergen is trying to prove a point to a talented player, but confirmed social media retard, in qualifying. Handle it internally and burn Altidore's twitter account in a fire.
Juergen can do whatever the hell he wants, and he would be justified in feeling vindicated if things go well tomorrow. However, Juergen's position is not an automatically excusable one, and it's not outrageous for fans to expect him to handle things differently.
Additionally, Eddie Johnson is not a wide player. I would not expect to see him out wide in a more traditional environment.
