View Full Version : Randy Johnson

RJ actually threw 54 pitches today before a Marlins batter put the ball in play
The man is amazing. I heard someone on the radio a couple days ago saying he is the most dominating left hander since Kofax.
Initially I thought that was absurd, but after further thought I don't think it is. Scary thing is, he looks better this year than last.

He is worth every penny he is being paid. How cool would it have been had he signed with my beloved Rangers?

And some would argue he is the most dominant left hander ever.
He's 38-39.... and unlike Ryan (win total suffered when he got older), Randy Johnson is still producing a lotta Ws.

randy johnson in his prime is better than nolan ryan in his prime
The strange thing is - the Big Unit seems to be getting BETTER as he ages. Weird!

he threw a pitch 100 mph in the 9th inning a couple of stars ago

It's amazing. I think he is up for a new contract this year isn't he?

absolutely murph. I get his bound edition each year and get reall upset when there isn't a daily report.

"The strange thing is - the Big Unit seems to be getting BETTER as he ages."
yeah, strange enough ... he's SO dominant...
I've been his fan since he played for Mariners.
I don't think even Pedro can be such a dominant hurler when he's at Johnson's age.

<< I don't think even Pedro can be such a dominant hurler when he's at Johnson's age. >>
Pedro is the "Latin American Sandy Koufax."
Will have a great short period of time but we not have many career achievements....
Great and unfortunate call Bayliss. I hope he doesn't become that, but I think you are right. Sandy was a huge loss. Possibly the most dominate 4 years a pitcher has thrown down ever.

Koufax is the greatest Jewish baseball player ever...
Next one will be Shawn Green (He is one of my favorite players).
Anyway I'll take both Johnson and Pedro any day...
