There was a time, not too awfully long ago, that Nick Johnson was a solid MLB 1st baseman. That time is not now, as he's just plain awful nowadays. Currently he is being paid by the Baltimore Orioles, who despite Johnson's complete uselessness, are in 1st place in the AL East with a 12-7 record. Johnson has managed to play in 8 games, while stealing 26 at bats from a more deserving player. In those 26 at bats, zero hits. His OPS is .133, because of one measly f'n walk and getting plunked 3 times. This is not an abnormality, this is a trend. In 2010 with the Yankees, Nick hit .167/.697 in 24 games. Last year he was so bad, that he never even got a chance to play in the Majors. Instead he stunk it up in the Indians minor leagues hitting only .201/654. What's the point in employing him anymore? By now it seems evident that he's just not worth a pinch of poop.
