More fun with Nick Johnson’s stats: his BA and SLG combined is lower than his OBP. I’m sure he’ll start hitting at some point, but until then it’s just funny to see him getting walked more Albert Pujols.

What’s really sad is is the Sox had four full-time players in their lineup yesterday. How a “brilliant” team ends up with three DH’s I have no idea. Losing Cameron and Ellsbury has hurt, but they’re not worth more than a win or two. The real problem was thinking Martinez is a full-time catcher – something he hasn’t done for a reason in recent season. But someone in the organization obviously decided a catcher’s defense isn’t important. I’d love to know who. And did Bill James really agree?
