Randy Johnson: The Last Pitcher To Be Told He'll Be The Last Pitcher To Reach 300?

Congratulations to Randy Johnson for recording his 300th career win in a 6-inning performance against the Washington Nationals. In the game, he didn't allow a baserunner until the 4th, and he didn't allow a hit till the 5th.

I've heard nothing except that he'll be the last pitcher to do it. While I don't entirely agree with this, I think it's more important to focus on the fact that it happened. Yesterday. Revel in it. Enjoy it. Love it and cherish it, because if Roy Halladay doesn't get to 300, he may very well be the last of a dead breed....

... and a further reminder that you should not baby pitchers! Let them pitch!!!
