MLB.com is reporting the San Francisco Giants have signed pitcher Randy Johnson to a one year deal on Friday.
It’s only worth $8 million. Are you really surprised?
During his tenure with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2008, he was still very much effective. His numbers were 11-10 with a 3.91 ERA.
Why are the Giants being cheap with the years and the cash? His age. The man is, after all, 45 years old. He’s had a series of back problems, one of which landed him on the DL and needing back surgery.
Being that he is a left-handed pitcher, I would not have minded all that much if the Mets had gone after him. Unfortunately, he cannot handle the New York media.
In other words, he cannot handle your truly.
