Will the real Big Unit please stand up?
Randy Johnson continued his maddeningly inconsistent season on Saturday afternoon in Toronto. Johnson allowed six runs (five earned) in just four innings as the Yanks lost, 8-5, to the Jays.
The Big Unit has allowed four or more runs in 10 of his 24 starts. Last season, Johnson was hit for four or more runs just six times in his 35 starts.
The outing was his second bad start in a row. He allowed six runs in 7 1/3 innings against the Angels last Sunday.
Johnson allowed one homer — to frickin’ Frank Menechino. He has allowed 24 taters this year, tying him with Jose Lima and Brad Radke for the most allowed in the American League.
The Yankees need Johnson to turn things around — or they won’t be in the playoffs.
