Rookie tell me where you are now - Randy Johnson

I know my scanner cut it but it is no difficult task to identify the AL Cy Young winner.

Lets make some room for Mr. Randy Johnson!

He got himself around a lot of teams:

    Montreal Expos (1988–1989)
    Seattle Mariners (1989–1998)
    Houston Astros (1998)
    Arizona Diamondbacks (1999–2004)
    New York Yankees (2005–2006)
    Arizona Diamondbacks (2007–2008)
    San Francisco Giants (2009)

Got to be a Yankee and also played for other two teams I like, D-Backs and Astros. Just missed Reds and he would be a star player for me.

He's one of those examples that got it right and got even more awards after RotY:

    10× All-Star (1990, 1993–1995, 1997, 1999–2002, 2004)
    World Series champion (2001)
    5× Cy Young Award (1995, 1999–2002)
    World Series MVP (2001)
    Triple Crown (2002)
    MLB wins leader (2002)
    4× ERA leader (1995, 1999, 2001, 2002)
    9× Strikeout leader (1992–1995, 1999–2002, 2004)
    Pitched a perfect game on May 18, 2004
    Pitched a no-hitter on June 2, 1990
    Arizona Diamondbacks No. 51 retired
    Seattle Mariners Hall of Fame

That's insane!

That's why after being RotY he got himself into MLB Hall of Fame.


  1. It's kinda surprising that he only threw two no-hitters during his career, because he was so dominant at times. I'm sure he's like Nolan Ryan where he pitched a ton of 1 and 2-hitters.

    1. Probably. I think it's like the goalkeepers in football. Usually the great GKs are those who suffer the the most weird goals lol Like Murphys Law. Here it seems the best Pitchers do not have so much of no-hitters or perfect games. Still, they are the best.
