johnson, randyIt surprised me that Johnson did not get a larger percentage of your votes.  He was one of the most dominating and intimidating pitchers of my era.  Can’t tell you how many times I saw teammates remove themselves from the lineup with a “sore hamstring”, or “tight back” the day he pitched.  He was a 5 time Cy Young winner, won 303 career wins, posted a .646 winning %, holds the MLB record for career K/9 at 10.6, etc. etc.  Curious, what more would he have had to accomplish to earn your vote?

Looking forward to seeing your vote on the new fan poll question asking which of the non-first time HOF candidates you would vote for this time around.

Thanks for voting!
