In what could be an epic pitching duel, the wily veteran--45 year old Randy Johnson--goes for career win 297 against the new gunslinger in town, 25 year old fireballer Ubaldo Jimenez. With rain in the forecast for San Francisco tonight, we could get a washout, or if not, a game played in cold wet conditions--Ubaldo's favorite, we all know.

You won't like Randy Johnson when he's angry! Johnson is just 1-2 with a 6.16 ERA this season, and he can't be pleased. Look for him to take out his frustration on the Rockies.
