In the first inning, with the bases loaded, Chris Johnson struck out for the 143rd time. He’s walked just 18 times, good for a .294 OBP. Frank Wren signed the defensively challenged third sacker to a needless contract extension earlier this season. He’s due $8 million a year over the next three years, beginning in 2015.
*FW traded a #1 draft pick he selected, Sean Gilmartin, for Ryan Doumit, who struck out for the 41st time tonight in 131 ABs. He has six walks.
*Wren hired Greg Walker, and Larry Parrish before that.
*He also hired Fredi, who persists in starting the worst player in baseball, still owed $46 million thanks to Frank Wren.
Fire Frank Wren.
