Randy Johnson Thinks He Could Take Doug Mientkiewicz

I suppose when you’re 6’11” and have a fastball that routinely touches the upper-90s, it’s probably not unreasonable  to think that you can take most guys in a fight. However, in the PC, sterilized relationship between professional athletes and the press, it’s not every player that feels comfortable vocalizing this information. Randy Johnson, however, is not one of those players.

In the third inning of the Pirates/Diamondbacks game today, Johnson threw inside to Doug Mientkiewicz, backing him off the plate.  On the next pitch, Johnson was partway through his motion, when Mientkiewicz halted the action by calling timeout and stepped out again. The two then began to bark at each other, escalating to the point that both benches and bullpens cleared, although no physical altercation took place. The game continued on without further incident.

When asked about the confrontation later, Johnson was blunt in his assessment.

“It’s really not the storyline. It didn’t bother me at all,” Johnson said. “If it would have, he’d probably be in a stretcher, and I’d probably be out of the game.”

Sadly, when asked to elaborate, Johnson did not add “I’m a baaaaaaaaaaad man.”

    Sure, when Randy’s facing the Pirates, he’s a “baaaaaaaaaaad man”. But where was that ‘tude when he’s in the divisional playoffs (2-8, 4.85 ERA)?
