Randy Johnson or Javier Vazquez?

You guys have no faith in Randy. He had his best season at 39, and even last year, through his struggles, he managed to pitch over 1 K/IP. So he's old, his knee has no natural cartilage, and he's old (I think I already said that), but he's Randy Johnson, and Randy Johnson pitching as Randy Johnson could almost single-handedly win you your fantasy pool (especially if he was taken in the 3rd round or later). I have faith that he'll pull another amazing season together...

I agree, based on his spring performance (I know it's the cardinal rule NOT to do this)...but he himself has said that his knee is not bothering him whatsoever in the spring. He will be fine, I just think he will be pulled a little earlier in games, maybe hurting his numbers a little. But I would take a proven ace with a slight chance of injury, as opposed to an unproven possible ace with no chance of injury. Johnson has been fantastic up until last year, how soon we forget....
