Big Unit May Miss Postseason
By mvyb, 14:07

Randy Johnson may miss this postseason after tests revealed a herniated disc in the Unit's lower back.

Yankee GM, Brian Cashman said, "I can't guarantee he's going to be there for us, but I'm not counting him out, either. He wants to pitch, to be out there competing and trying to help us win. I hope he gets that opportunity, but his body has to tell him first."

Last week, Johnson informed the team of back spasms he felt over the past month.

How does this affect the Yankees postseason hopes? Well, I'm not the worried about the loss- it's not like we lost a Johann Santana.

Randy Johnson's '06 Numbers
Record 17-11
ERA 5.00
IP 205
Hits 194
HR Allowed 28
WHIP 1.24

Ok, so besides his 17-11 record, he was awful this year. He allowed WAY too many homers, hits, and runs to be considered a good pitcher. Then how did he get the 17-11 record? Run support. With run support, anyone can pick up a "W".
Jeff Karstens ( 4.00 ERA), Wright ( 4.39 ERA), and Lidle ( 4.83 ERA) have all pitched better then Johnson this year.
One more thing to look at:  Our #3 starter will be facing the other teams' #3 starter.
( MIN) Matt Garza: 3-5, 5.76 ERA
(MIN) Carlos Silva: 10-15, 6.07 ERA
(DET) Jeremy Bonderman: 4.00 ERA
(OAK) Joe Blanton: 14-8, 4.83 ERA
(OAK) Dan Haren: 14-13, 4.11 ERA
The Yankees will be trotting out one of the greatest post-season lineup ever. They'll be able to hit anyone- even Johann Santana, Barry Zito, and Kenny Rogers.
As long as Wright, Lidle, Karstens, and Rasner (?) pitch halfway decently, the Yanks should be fine.
