what's the odds of randy johnson getting an injury this year

he seems to pitch full seasons, and it annoys the hell out of me. he's an ugly, hick looking bastard, by far the ugliest in major league baseball. i want him injured badly, so that he can stop carrying other teams pitching staffs in fantasy leagues. i mean, look at him. you can easily tell he's a scumbag. PLEEEEEASE GET HURT BAD, RANDY!!!!!

First, anyone that wishes a painful, debilitating injury to a real player just so they can have a slightly better chance of winning a fantasy game, is either ignorant and unthinkingly callous, or a scuzzball. :-t

Second, if the only way you can hope to win fantasy baseball is to wish for other manager's star players to get injured, then perhaps you need to rethink your drafting strategy, player management, or free agent due diligence, rather than just hoping that everyone else's players get hurt. :-t

Finally, considering that Randy has never had a major injury that I can recall, and that he is a conditioning nut who, according to reports, took it to a new level this year, I'd say he's in the bottom 25% of the pitchers who are likely to be injured. In any event, he's no more likely than any other pitcher to get injured. Look at Nolan Ryan, Satchell Paige and others that pitched, injury-free, into their 40s, and quite successfully (though not so successfully as Randy.
