After 21 years in the major leagues Randy Johnson earned his 300th win, beating the pathetic Nationals 5-1. Johnson celebrated by hugging his son, his teammates and his manager, knifing a drifter (would it shock you if this was true? Really?) and buying a new industrial sized jar a Vaseline to rub into his glorious Kentucky Waterfall. The Expos Astros Diamondbacks Yankees Diamondbacks Giants’ pitcher became just the 24 player to win 300 games.
Johnson’s 6’10” physique and “rugged good looks” have made him a fan favorite, while his easy going ways have made a him as popular in the clubhouse as a book is at Kansas State. Some will remember Randy Johnson for helping the Diamondbacks win the World Series, others will remember him for his time with the Mariners, and yet others will remember him for his towering frame and intimidating scowl. I will remember Johnson for his unabashed hatred of nature.
