Casual Friday: Ageless, Aging, Aged

The Yankees are all about the pinstripes, in every sense of the word. The rest of MLB is more casual. This is the latest post in a Friday series called Casual Friday, in which I take a quick look around the rest of Major League Baseball.

* Congratulations to "Big Unit," Randy Johnson on winning the 300th game of his career. A usually ornery Johnson smiled and spoke politely during his postgame press conference. This was a complete turnaround for the 45 year-old veteran, who once spoke like an old man to a photographer on a street in New York City, saying "Don't talk back to me!"

* Tom Glavine was released by the Braves this week. Glavine has won 305 games, most of them for Atlanta, yet they have put him out to pasture. Look for Glavine to land back in New York real soon, wearing a Mets uniform.

* "Big Papi," David Ortiz, has agreed to have his eyes checked. He says he still has 20/20 vision but he's willing to try just about anything. Does that include women's fertility drugs? Oh, I'm sorry, he's already tried those (indirectly). They no longer provide any "protection."

That's all for now, ladies and gentlemen. Don't forget to tune in to LATB Radio this Sunday night at 10 PM Eastern. It's all about the Tampa Bay Rays!

Wasn't that win by Randy Johnson great?
