September 29, Phoenix – Like twenty two other teams in baseball, my vacation starts today in peace and relaxation, while still having the burning desire to be joining the team for the first round of the playoffs. For the eight fortunate franchises, their employees and most importantly their fans..congratulations! Enjoy the ride, the joy and the emotion that you will never ever forget.
For the likes of Randy Johnson and David Eckstein, this October and the months to follow present a period of time to make career and life decisions. As of this morning, N.L. Cy Young voters have made their made their decision on who will receive the coveted hardware. In this entry are conversations with Johnson, Eckstein, plus Brandon Webb and Tim Lincecum together.
First up a two part conversation with Randy on the day before he took the mound for his 295th career victory. It was heard on Baseball Sunday on Sports 620 KTAR:
