Randy Johnson’s march towards 300 wins continues today in New York.
Armed with 298 career victories, ‘The Big Unit’ takes on the New York Mets this afternoon as he tries to get closer to pitching’s milestone of 300 victories. It will be a tall task(no pun intended) as he is battling against one of the game’s premier pitchers in Johan Santana.
Hopefully Johnson can cool off the bats of these Mets for the afternoon…

Maybe it was me. Maybe it was my bashing of Hanley Ramirez’s efforts over the course of the first 22 games of the season…
I don’t know for sure what it was, but I can tell you one thing – Hanley Ramirez is on FIRE right now!!!!
While hitting safely in his last 10 games, Hanley is batting .475 while also crushing 3 home runs, stealing 3 bases, and collecting 7 RBI. In addition to his impressive offensive stats from the last 2 weeks, Hanley has made some nice defensive plays at shortstop too. And I have even seen him get his jersey dirty quite a bit lately, which is a prerequisite for me and my favorite infielders.
Keep up the great work Hanley!! If you don’t, I’ll be back to set you straight once again!!!
