08:13 AM ET 03.05 | Of course, he was hard not to notice. Around 9 a.m. on Monday, a group of Salt River Fields employees leaned over a railing near the Diamondbacks' complex and called toward a tall, lanky man down below. When he looked up and waved, everyone seemed content. Randy Johnson was in camp. The man most likely to be the Diamondbacks' first representative in the Hall of Fame has had a frosty relationship with his old organization in recent years. But there he was, watching Diamondbacks pitchers throw in bullpen sessions early Monday morning. ... While Johnson declined to delve into his parting of ways with the Diamondbacks after 2008, his presence Monday suggests time has at least partially healed the wounds.

Valid point. He played 10 seasons for the Mariners. They are the team that he became a star playing for, and he should go into the HOF as a Mariner.

All is Foregiven Randy!!!

He should go in as a Mariner not a Diamondback

March 5, 2013  08:20 PM ET

I have to admit - when I saw the headline I wondered which team.

He won a World Series with the Diamondbacks, had 4 Cy Youngs with them. He might have spent more time with the Mariners, but he was at his best and will be most remembered as a Dback, and he should go into the HOF as a Dback. His most productive seasons were in Arizona.
