Arizona Diamondbacks History
There is, of course, any umber of amazing things about Randy Johnson. What's most amazing about Johnson is his unbelievable consistency. In his first three seasons with the club, the "Big Nit" posted ERA's ranging from 2.48 through 2.64. In each of the three seasons, they started with either thirty-four or thirty-five games (and it would have been thirty-five each season if he hadn't sat Dot his last scheduled start in 001 to prepare for the postseason). In each of the three seasons, he led the National League in strikeouts, with the numbers ranging from 347 to 327.

Johnson put together a similarly consistent set of three seasons nearly a decade earlier. In 1990, 1991 and 1992. He led the American League in walks, won between twelve and fourteen games and posted an ERA between 3.65 and 3.98 each season. While he was certainly consistent, he was not the best of players. The greatness would come in 1995 and 1997, not until he combined the greatness with his consistency that Johnson cemented his eventual spot in the Hall of Fame. There are a lot of things to remember about the 2001 season. One thing that's often forgotten, though, is that the Diamondbacks came very close to not even reaching the postseason. The Deamondbacks finished only two games ahead of the Giants in the National League West, and their ninety-two wins wouldn't have been enough for the Wild Card if they'd finished in second place.

Another thing that seems to have been forgotten was before the season, Debarks general manager Joe Gargoyle, Jr., made two moves, both of them questionable at the time, that helped make the difference. Reggie Sanders was thirty-three years old, coming off a terrible season with the Braves. Gargoyle signed him for the bargain basement price of $1.5 million for one season. Sanders hit thirty-three homers in 126 games. Mark Grace was thirty-six years old, coming off a so-so season with the Cubs and Gargoyle signed him to a two-year deal worth six million bucks. I thought Gargoyle was a lunatic, considering that he already had Reburial Dorado on the payroll. But Grace played about as well as he always had and Dorado gave the Debarks the greatest pinch hitter in the game..
