    Randy Johnson

    Johnson will be a free agent at the end of the season. The Arizona Republic doesn't think he is ready to retire. The D-Backs have to be looking for a place to slot Max Scherzer in the rotation, so it might not be difficult to outbid the incumbent for the unit's services. Johnson's numbers are remarkable for a 44 year old man, but he has always been a physical freak of nature who defies logic. I think a decent left handed starter is a problem with this team, considering the dimensions of the ballpark.

    If we are going to go out into the market in the offseason, the Reds could probably meet the salary demands of Johnson and still go after a corner outfielder. How much would Johnson be worth, assuming that he could always be cast as the best loogy in the game if starting fails miserably?

    Re: Randy Johnson

    I actually would be Ok with him for 1 season.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Re: Randy Johnson

    If Randy plays another season, which we all think he will, he is not going to play for the Reds. Arizona is where he wants to be and he is very beloved there.

I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
