  5. Doesn’t fit the description, but first person I thought of when I saw the nickname was Rich Harden.

  6. Darren Daulton’s history of catching on knees wrapped in electric tape and slathered in epoxy, along with his noted affinity for mayhem gives him a strong case. He believed that a combination of tobacco juice, his mullet grease (his mullet grease alone–Kruk’s lacked the proper binding agent), and sunflower seeds, ground in a mortar and pestle in proper proportion and applied as a salve, could cure dropsy and imbue his teammates w/ the pep necessary to survive a grueling schedule of alcohol consumption and baseballing.

  7. I … was about to suggest Daulton.

  10. Nick. Johnson.

  11. Pete Reiser. Always hurt, played in an era of questionable surgical fixes.

    Comment by Big Jgke — July 5, 2012 @ 3:18 pm

  12. Magglio Ordonez, for having his leg fixed with a little scotch tape and linguine.

  13. Moises Alou.

  14. Mark Prior:
    enough experience with sports medicine to fill a museum

  15. It seems to be a fitting tag to affix to a certain Charles Radbourn.

    Here is Charles Radbourn with the aforementioned tag affixed:

    Charles Radborn Museum of Questionable Medical Devices

  16. Doc Gooden:
    Doc was his nickname, cocaine his magic poultice.

    Comment by RA Rowe — July 5, 2012 @ 3:31 pm

  17. let’s be honest, he is a former player

    Comment by RA Rowe — July 5, 2012 @ 3:32 pm

  18. Gaylord Perry for his use of KY Jelly, Vaseline, nail files, haircare products, and god knows what else to doctor baseballs.

    Comment by Yirmiyahu — July 5, 2012 @ 3:34 pm

  19. It calls to mind a base-ball-ist who was tough enough to have played despite having an amputation wound field-dressed before continuing to fight on for God and country.

    The guy’s an asshole and a swindler, but isn’t this Curt Schilling?

    Comment by Yirmiyahu — July 5, 2012 @ 3:37 pm

  20. Maybe its cheap and lazy, but how is this NOT Barry Bonds?

    Comment by Tommy Lasordas Pasta — July 5, 2012 @ 3:46 pm

  21. The first thought I had before I thought of Daulton was of Perry, but I thought better of it once I realized that the medicine in question was supposed to be practiced on the self as opposed to others. Though the image of Perry pitching with a mirror on his head seems fitting.

  22. why did “nickname seeks player” original have to end? run out of ideas? i’m sure there a million good ones still out there.

    Comment by phoenix2042 — July 5, 2012 @ 3:59 pm

  23. Mike Hampton. Clearly whatever medical devices were used on him proved useless.

    Comment by kenshin kawakami — July 5, 2012 @ 4:09 pm

  24. Scott Rolen.

    Comment by sporkless — July 5, 2012 @ 4:14 pm

  25. I don’t think this should just be someone wh owas always hurt, but someone who tried unconventional ways to heal, or played with a wierd brace or helmet or something, like John Olerud.

    Comment by DD — July 5, 2012 @ 4:16 pm

  26. Because it should be Jose “The Science Project” Canseco.

    Comment by MikeS — July 5, 2012 @ 4:26 pm

  27. Seriously. When he passes on his engorged cranium should be kept floating in a jar of formaldehyde. It’s a questionable medical device all of it’s own!

    Comment by David — July 5, 2012 @ 4:32 pm

  28. Tommy John
    Jim Abbott
    Carl Mays
    Clarence Blethen
    Mike Matheny
    Vince Coleman
    Tyler Colvin

  29. Maybe Pete Rose? Since he’s not in the Hall of Fame, he could just be his own museum (of questionable medical devices). I was going to say Lenny Dykstra, but I think there’s a much more special nickname waiting for him.

    Comment by Mr. Smooth — July 5, 2012 @ 4:40 pm

  30. Roger Clemens works better, because we actually have some questionable medical devices related to him.

    Comment by Jack — July 5, 2012 @ 6:09 pm

  31. Alex Cole

    Comment by Aaron55 — July 5, 2012 @ 6:10 pm

  32. Jim Abbott

    Dude threw a no hitter on LSD, MDMA, bath salts and N2O. Plus, he stayed hydrated by sipping on Virgin Pina Coladas out of a coconut between innings. Don’t forget, the next morning he initiated the movement to allow marriage between humans and inanimate objects when he went to Haiti and married a slot machine. The slot machine left him penniless… and that’s how slot machines became known as…

  33. G-Man maybe dreamed of throwing his no-hitter from 3B. You mean Doc Ellis? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vUhSYLRw14

    Comment by Wu — July 5, 2012 @ 9:21 pm

  34. Here I was, thinking, “Boy, I bet nobody else is going to come up with Gary Gaetti.” Nope.

    Comment by Mikey — July 6, 2012 @ 12:47 am

  35. I thought of him because he was a false-cure to the Rockies’ pitching woes

    Comment by shamus mcfitzy — July 6, 2012 @ 6:04 am

  36. Lenny Dykstra. He seems like a guy to whom the word “questionable” should be attached.

    Comment by Eminor3rd — July 6, 2012 @ 11:13 am

  37. Turk Wendell.

    Comment by BenH — July 6, 2012 @ 2:56 pm

  38. Doc Medich

    Comment by reillocity — July 6, 2012 @ 7:44 pm

  39. For pissing on his hands?

    Comment by Røark — July 7, 2012 @ 5:47 am

  40. One of the world’s great institutions is the Museum of Jurassic Technology. Their website was also built on GeoCities: http://www.mjt.org/

    Comment by Røark — July 7, 2012 @ 6:08 am

  41. Tommy John. “Doc” Gooden.

    “Doc” Ellis should be ineligible for his name is forever “psychedelic slamgrass”

    Comment by Nu? BillyBaroooo — July 7, 2012 @ 11:28 pm

  42. rube waddell, for most assuredly having beenmisdx’d by early 20th century doctors.

    Comment by jcxy — July 8, 2012 @ 7:12 pm

  43. Yeah, Schilling was definitely what I thought when I read that part of the description.

    Comment by ElJosharino — July 8, 2012 @ 9:54 pm

  44. Turk Wendell for sure. His leeches, bonesaws, and liquor took the form of leaping over foul lines, black licorice, and slamming down the rosin bag among about a thousand other things.

    Comment by ElJosharino — July 8, 2012 @ 9:58 pm

  45. Roger Clemens. Icy hot on the gonads before every start sounds pretty questionable to me. Oh yeah, and roids
