        #291

        Randy Johnson improved to 13-0 in 14 career starts against the Chicago Cubs on Monday night, outdueling Rich Harden in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 2-0 victory. Johnson (7-7), winning his third in a row after six consecutive losses, allowed two hits, struck out four and walked one in seven innings for his 291st victory.

        It looks as though Johnson has about eight more starts this year. If he wins them all, he'll still be short of 300 this year.

          RJ working towards 300 Wins

          To Rennie Stennett: Johnson has 12 starts left including the one later today. (not 8). Even with those extra four starts, it's still more likely that he reaches 300 wins early in the '09 season than this year.

          On his last start Johnson, second in strikouts all-time, behind only Nolan Ryan, moved to within 1,000 strikeouts of Ryan. Johnson's 999 strikeouts behind with 4,715 Ks as opposed to Ryan's 5,714 Ks-(not that Nolan is worried).

                Thanks. He could get very close to the number this year then. Let's hope he does it in a Diamondback Uniform. To think, the M's thought he had a bad back when he was 34. I remember when David Segui changed the music in the clubhouse on a day the the big unit was scheduled to start. Needless to say, it went over like a bad case of gas at church.

                  RJ's Winning Streak ended By Near-Perfecto

                  You can't win if your opposing pitcher has a perfect game, or comes darn close to perfection.
                  Randy Johnson failed in his quest for Career win # 294 yesterday, losing 2-0 to Pirates pitcher, Jeff Karstens who had a perfect game through seven and two-thirds innings. Karstens finished with a Complete Game , Shutout , yielding just two hits and a walk.
                  Johnson had won all of his five previous starts. Johnson struckout seven batters in 7.1 innings. He lowered his earned run average to 4.24.
                  His strikeout totals are now 4730 for his career and 114 for the season. What are the odds a pitcher in his mid-40s could still have a 200 strikeout season.Johnson is on a pace that would give him just shy of 200 strikeouts for this season. He's now 9-8 for the season, 293-158 - .650 Win.% for his career.

                      Unlucky Matchups

                      Randy Johnson has had a couple of unfortunate matchups with opposition pitchers lately. Jeff Kartens almost threw a perfect game against him and yesterday Roy Oswalt threw a shutout against him. In both cases Johnson pitched well but lost close games. He was good enough to win on most days. His ERA is still dropping, now to 4.16.

                      Johnson would have to be near-perfect to reach 300 wins this year. Currently with 294 wins, he would need six victories in seven projected remaining starts. Just a guess but I'm predicting he reaches 300 early next season - before May 1. He's still pitching well for the most part and he will still be an asset to the Diamondbacks in 2009.
                      I'm projecting about 180 strikeouts for him this year, which will put him about 10th in the league. Not bad for a guy in his mid-40s.

                          A Wasted Effort

                          A lot of the blame for Randy Johnson having to wait until 2009 to win his
                          300th game falls at the feet of his teammates. The 2008 Diamondbacks are a very light-hitting bunch, particularly when RJ is on the mound, and their run support for him has been criminal lately. The D'Backs bullpen hasn't done him any favors either, case in point last night when the bullpen blew a lead Johnson took into the eighth inning. A 13-Strikeout effort by Johnson (his best single game total since 2004) was wasted last night.

                            Numbers Game

                            With that 13 strikeout effort, Friday, Johnson's career total in strikeouts is now up to 4,755. He might even become the second pitcher in history to reach 5,000 career strikeouts if he were to play until 2010. He's also lowered his season's ERA to just above four runs per game after a near-disasterous start, but the personal number that will make his career complete now is 300, as in 300 wins. He still needs six more wins to reach that milestone, which is probably no longer possible and out of reach in 2008.

                              Perfection Required

                              Johnson is scheduled to pitch Wednesday's game (8/27), Diamondbacks gm. # 133, and every fifth game would result in starts in games #s 138.143,148,153 and 158. He was jumped up or moved up in the rotation once recently so he'd have to be jumped up a day in the rotation again to get an extra start for game # 162.
                              That's six or seven remaining starts for RJ, and he needs six wins for 300, so he'd have to be just about perfect and be a little lucky as well, to reach 300 wins this season.

                                True, I'm hoping it happens this year, but irregardless it's been a pleasure watching him get closer to reaching 300 Wins this year.
