Randy Johnson Retires

Originally uploaded by Jumper48
After 22 seasons and 303 wins, my favorite pitcher, Randy Johnson, has announced his retirement. He made it clear that he wanted to leave the game on his terms and that is why he chose to leave now. He has been fighting injuries and inconsistencies over the last few years so it looks like he made the right decision.

He definitely has a HOF career going 303-166 with 4,875 strikeouts for 6 different teams, including playing for my two favorite teams Seattle Mariners and Arizona Diamondbacks. He has won the MVP, has thrown 2 no-hitters and has won the Cy Young Award 5 times. I hope to see Randy Johnson standing on the steps of Cooperstown in 2015.

As expected, with the announcement the eBay Trolls have begun overloading the site with well over 200 new auctions added within the last 12 hours. Most are grossly overpriced too.
