Shocker: Nick Johnson wasn’t injured before last night

I swear I read the box scores to every game, but for some reason the fact that Nick Johnson had gone all the way until today without being on the disabled list took me by surprise. But he’s there now: the O’s placed him on the DL with a sprained right wrist he sustained in last night’s game.

Obviously the DL and wrist issues are nothing new to Johnson. What is kind of new is his relative ineffectiveness when he has been in the game. He’s hitting a mereĀ .207/.324/.391 on the year.

    It’s hard to be consistent when you’ve been on the DL as many times as he has.

    Anyone that signs this guy is on LSD.

    He’s 33. He hasn’t hit well since 2009. Probably about over.

    Why is this bum still on a MLB roster, laughing all the way to the bank
