Farewell, Old Friend; Hello, First-Ballot Hall-of-Famer

Randy Johnson is retiring. It's not hard to understand why. Still, along with Maddux, Johnson was my favorite pitcher in the game, and it will be weird this spring to not see him on the mound with somebody, and he's probably the last 300-game winner we'll see for an awfully long time (if we ever see one again). A sad day for baseball and baseball fans, but Johnson should feel nothing but pride and satisfaction.
