Ok the 3-3 record is not great, but poor run support, poor managing have caused RJ to be 500.
Not looking at the record, what do you see?
opp bat avg is .186

I have seen about 5 of the Unit's 7 starts, and he has been absolutely dominant just as his numbers show. His signature slider is as nasty as ever and hitters are whiffing left and right at it. He is confident and he has gone back to his old manerisms/motion of the past.
I was very, very skeptical about the unit preseason. I got him in the 5th rd, as I could just not pass him up in the 5th.
Randy Johnson is 40 years old, and logic tells us he can't stay at this pace and he can never return to form. Thing is, Randy Johnson is and always has been "special and diffrent". RJ is one of the few pitchers and even still at 40 that can basically just keep pitchin and pitchin, almost as if pitch counts mean nothing (old skool). Randy has always been diffrent.
Just a year ago he was the first pitcher taken, he has a nightmare year filled w/ injuries and this season he is treated like the plague. Everyone knew in the back of their minds that the Unit had high risk/reward written all over him. I belive the unit took a trip to the fountain of youth b/c he has been just as dominant as ever in 2004. watch out b/c the Unit has returned to form!
