    Randy Johnson retires after 22 seasons - MLB - Yahoo! Sports

    Don't know about the rest of you but if I were voting for the HoF then Randy is an easy yes.

    Makes me wish I made a poll now. :lol:

    Birds who call the rafters of MLB ballparks home breathe a sigh of relief.

    I remember seeing him pitch several times at Tiger Stadium when he was with the M's. The combination of him and Junior was always worth a trip to the ballpark.

    Wonder who will be the next to reach 300. Big gap right now with other active pitchers.

    I remember when he came up with the Expos. Tall, awkward, gangly, fast as hell.....but was all over the place. He started so slow you never would have pegged him for Hall of Fame.
    Now, he is one of the best pitchers I ever saw

    Oh yeah, definite Hall of Fame.

    Last of the ridiculous high stamina high strike out fellas to.

    He also stayed clear of the steroid scandal somehow.

    His numbers would have been even more ridiculous if he avoided that starting pitching hole the Yankees are.
