Randy Johnson to retire

Early reports are saying Randy “Big Unit” Johnson is planning on retiring after 22 seasons.

The 6-foot-10 lefty is a sure Hall of Famer with a 303-166 record, a 3.29 career ERA and 4,875 strikeouts. He never won a World Series, but five Cy Young Awards and 10 All-Star selections make him a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

It goes to show what kind of guy he is when he was probably just one season away from becoming the second pitcher with 5,000 strikeouts.
