Get Off My Lawn!

Randy Johnson, feeling better than ever, will make his very first Spring Training start today.

The Arizona Diamondbacks’ veteran lefty will pitch two innings against the Colorado Rockies after recovering from his second back operation in as many years. Johnson went 4-3 with a 3.81 ERA in just 10 starts for the D'Backs last season, before undergoing his second back surgery.

Manager Bob Melvin asked the Rockies to use a designated hitter so the 44-year-old Big Unit would’t have to bat, and the team agreed. Sissy.

Maybe he should leave the NL if he can't swing a bat. Just a suggestion.
