AN AMAZING ACCURACY

Randy Johnson becomes the oldest player in major league baseball to throw a perfect game. There's an old adage in baseball that a team can never have too much pitching. Randy at 40 years of age became the oldest pitcher to throw a perfect game, in Major League Baseball with 13 strikeouts on his way to a 2-0 defeat of the Atlanta Braves in 2004. Since entering the league, he has been among the most feared pitchers in the game. There you, it seems as if a player in his senility becomes all the more enthusiastic! However, even though he is now in his early 40's, Johnson has consistently proven himself to get better with age. An old wine!

Opposing hitters have often remarked that, because of his height and release point, it feels as though he's pitching from ten feet closer than he actually is. Combined with a 95 - 100 mile-per-hour fastball, and a slider that has been compared to that of Hall of Famer Steve Carlton's, many batters find him practically unhittable. Is he really unhittable? How can one even think of to hit him when he lives the life of seclusion?

"Mr. Snappy" after being acquired by the Yankees in 2006, inconsistent through 2005, and allowed 32 home runs to hitters. Johnson regained his dominance in late 2005, and was 5-0 against the Yankees' arch rival Red Sox. He finished the season 17-8 with a 3.79 ERA, he also was second in the AL with strikeouts.

S just predict how will he perform in 2006?
