I believe that those two guys would qualify for the "full fledged" nut category, RedsBaron.
Johnson was one of the all time bad characters in the game.
St Louis Cardinals publicity director, Jim Toomey, in a phone call to beat writer Earl Lawson upon learning that Alex Johnson had just been traded from the Cardinals to the Reds:
Earl, I just want to warn you that when Alex Johnson says "Mother," he has just exhausted half of his vocabulary.
Lawson later learned that Toomey hadn't been kidding.
