    I noticed a link over at BaseballThinkFactory.org today that had a story on Randy Johnson’s “love child.”

    There’s probably more of these types of stories out there than we are aware. Years ago, I heard stories about Bernie Williams having a baby with some girl in the Bronx. Is it true? Who knows? But, it was a story that I heard whispered in more than one place.

    Back to Unit, I hope that the New York media doesn’t turn this into something bigger than it should be – because so many players do have this type of stuff out there (and not everyone one of these stories ends up on the front page).

    The Yankees need to have a very good Randy Johnson this season. And, anything that could upset that (like a media circus/witch hunt) will not be in the best interests of Yankees fans.

      Story made the front page of the NY Daily News today. Also woke up to the story on 1010-WINS this morning.

      Media will probably make a mountain out of a molehill. It’s what they do. Don’t really care one way or the other.

      As for media presence affecting RJ’s performance, I don’t put too much stock in that. Either a player has talent, or he doesn’t. Blaming the media for performance, or lack thereof, is the easy way out and avoids the fact that the player was never really that good to begin with.

      I dunno…..I think that talent needs the right environment to do it’s thing.

      There’s so much in play with this it’s not even funny.

      For all we know he could be getting back at her because she threated to blackmail him or something back in the day.

      “I dunno…..I think that talent needs the right environment to do it’s thing.”

      Just ask our good pal, Francisco.
