He's Randy Johnson for a reason.
It's just nice to be able to go out in the community and help kids, especially.
To be one of 30 nominees is quite an honor, and to have Edgar win it last year and Jamie the year before makes it even more meaningful.
It is a big honor, obviously. It's not one of those things you have in mind when you're doing things off the field to help people. It's just nice to be able to go out in the community and help kids, especially.
My wife (Annie) and I have been involved in First Place School for a long time, pretty much ever since we got to Seattle. That was the first (charitable) thing we did. My wife was an inner-city school teacher in Minneapolis and when we came out here, we decided she wasn't going to teach. She wanted to get involved in the community in some way. We asked the Mariners and they pointed us in that direction. It has been a great relationship since, a great fit, and we have enjoyed it.
The train wreck is coming, and they're not addressing the issue.
The relationship between my family and the Mariners' family has been amazing. Our relationship is not over, just changing. I look forward to staying involved in some way, shape or form in the years to come.
Certainly the '95 season was at the top of the list, the emotions day after day. All those things we went through were things you never forget. It was just a feeling of accomplishment, coming back from so far back to tie at the end of the season.
I have decided that this will be my last season. I just think it is time. I have been blessed to spend the past 12 seasons here in Seattle, playing with the Mariners and great, great teammates. The fans here have always been terrific to me, and to my family. I'm proud to be a part of the city and Annie and I look forward to remaining in Seattle as we raise our children and remain active in the community.
Thanks For The Memories.
There's an extremely talented crew base here in Milwaukee. We're eager to showcase both the talent and the production environment that Milwaukee has to offer.
It's just nice that they invited me down. It's a chance to see some of the new catchers and young guys and talk to Kenji a little bit. It's been nice.
It reaffirms this notion that there is mismanagement and corruption rampant - even though that's not in fact the case.
