    Former Yankees, Nationals and Orioles first baseman Nick Johnson, one of the great what-ifs of the last 15 years, has opted for retirement, WFAN’s Sweeny Murti reports. A phenomenal hitting talent, Johnson missed his first full season in the Yankees system before even arriving in the majors. He hit .345/.525/.548 in 132 games in Double-A…

  2. You asked me questions on Twitter. So I shall answer them.

    The Question

    I haven’t done one of these in forever. Mostly because they were getting a little tired. Batman. Aquaman. Bourbon. Sure, those are things I love, hate and love, respectively, but a sameness crept in. ¬†Hopefully now that some time has passed, this exercise will seem fresh again. Have at you! Q: I’ve always wondered how…

  3. Shocker: Nick Johnson wasn’t injured before last night

    Nick Johnson

    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…

  4. Bobby Valentine going old school with Alfredo Aceves

    Alfredo Aceves

    Red Sox closer Alfredo Aceves is on a roll, having converted nine straight save chances. And they haven’t all been easy: in the last week, he has three save of four outs. That may not look overly significant at first glance, but Aceves is the only reliever with multiple saves of more than three outs…

  5. Nick Johnson homers, steals base, retains limbs

    Nick Johnson

    I’m really pretty happy to see Nick Johnson back in the majors. The 33-year-old Johnson had his best game of the season Friday in a win over the Rays, going 2-for-2 with a homer, a walk and a stolen base as Baltimore beat Tampa Bay 4-3. It was his first homer of the season. Credit…

  6. Nick Johnson’s career OBP dips below .400

    Baltimore Orioles infielder Johnson reaches for a grounder during workouts at the team's spring training complex in Sarasota

    I’ll admit, the biggest reason I’m writing this post is because I think it’s kind of neat to be talking about Nick Johnson playing baseball games. He’s done so little of that over the years due to injury and all of that. Kind of a shame given how much promise he once had. But alas,…

  7. Nick Johnson is likely to make the Orioles … “if healthy”

    Baltimore Orioles infielder Johnson reaches for a grounder during workouts at the team's spring training complex in Sarasota

    When it comes to Nick Johnson, using the “if healthy” caveat makes anything that follows sound sort of silly, but manager Buck Showalter indicated yesterday that the perpetually injured first baseman is likely to make the Orioles out of spring training … if healthy. “I think he brings some things that I’d really like to…

  8. Running down the rosters: Baltimore Orioles

    Matt Wieters, Adam Jones

    After sitting out the chase for Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder, the Orioles are staring down a fifth straight last-place finish and a seventh consecutive 90-loss season. Such is life in the AL East. Rotation Jason Hammel – R Zach Britton – L Jake Arrieta – R Wei-Yin Chen – L Tommy Hunter – R…

    Marc Carig of the Newark Star Ledger reports that the Yankees have declined their 2011 options on Lance Berkman, Kerry Wood, and Nick Johnson, all of which were expected moves. Berkman’s contract included a $15 million team option or $2 million buyout for 2011, but as part of his accepting a trade to the Yankees…
