BP Unfiltered

Small Sample Theater, Starring Nick Johnson

by Ben Lindbergh

Presented without (much) comment: Nick Johnson's monthly splits so far this season.

Bonus graph: Changes in Nick Johnson's career on-base percentage and emotional state since Opening Day.

With any luck, he'll never go 0-for-29 and fall below .400 again.

Glad today's story on Johnson's retirement included this link. Excellent data display, and a lot of fun.
