John Lindsey's Season Comes To An End

John Lindsey's season is over. He was hit in the left hand by a 92-mph Daniel Hudson fastball Saturday night. Lindsey, who has spent the last 16 years in the minor leagues, finally made it to the majors with the Dodgers as a September call-up.

X-rays revealed he had broken the fourth metacarpal in his left hand. It was placed in a soft splint and should heal in time for Spring Training.

As usual, John Lindsey stayed positive:

"I still have my faith.God has a special plan for me, leave it right there. The comeback will make for a better story. It's all good."
I'm sure this won't be the last time we see John Lindsey. He was one of the few good stories in this crappy Dodger season. Lindsey went 1 for 12 in his brief time with the Dodgers.


  1. I have said it once and I'll say it again. The world would be a better place if people had John Lindsey's attitude.

  2. Jessica - Absolutely. He's a class act. He stuck it out in the minors for a long time, not too many people can hack it as long as he did.

  3. Unbelievable! I would have punched a wall with my other good hand. ...Talk about your modern day Doc Graham.

  4. Mike - Seriously. Lindsey was able to get 12 ABs though, with one hit. Still that seems like nothing after spending a million years in the minors.
