These two photos of Jim Johnson are painful and amazing

24/07/2014 § Leave a comment

Jim Johnson, with all those saves over the past two seasons, became a pitcher who couldn’t get an out.

Last night, with the A’s up by 7 runs, manager Bob Melvin gave the struggling hurling an opportunity seemingly without risk.

Johnson faced four batters, and all four scored.

It was his last appearance for Oakland, who designated him for assignment this morning.

And then there’s the human element. Sport is all about success. This is the opposite.
