Nick Johnson pulled the plug on a decade-long, injury-filled major league career yesterday,  an bittersweet occasion that is somewhat mitigated by the former Yankeee/Nationals 1B at least having an acting career to fall back on.

Johnson’s work under the psuedonym, “Jon Polito” while certainly revered by fans of television’s “Homicide”, is best exemplified by his star turn in the Coen Brothers’ “Miller’s Crossing”.  And I’ll bet you’re wishing I’d posted a clip from that movie, instead.
