It's Opening Day: Randy Johnson Starts the Season for the 14th Time
Monday, April 03, 2006
As Yankees and A's fans hold their breath hoping that the clouds don't let loose for a few more hours, Randy Johnson is busy warming up to start the season off for his team. This is the fourteenth season-opening start for the Unit, more than any other active pitcher, and after feeling comfortable and confident during spring training he is ready to leave the mound a winner. Randy is 6-2 on Opening Day starts, including the 9-2 win over the Red Sox in his Yankees debut last April 3.

The Unit had a rough year in 2005 - by his standards, anyway. He has been the target of much speculation, namely questions over whether he is too old to perform like he used to. Most fans believe that his performance last year was stunted by good old fashion discomfort from being in a new city with a high profile team, and although he denies that he felt any added pressure, I'd be willing to bet that Johnson amps up his performance this year: more strikeouts and an improved WHIP are in the cards for the Unit in 2006. Tonight's start will mark not only the beginning for the season for the Yankees, but the beginning of a chance for Randy Johnson to prove to any nay-sayers that he can still lead a team to the World Series.
