Is Randy johnson warming up?

If Johnson really gets his groove on during the Dog Days of Summer, then the Yanks will be looking pretty good:

This was only the second 2006 start in which Johnson didn't allow a run. His fastball had 95 MPH life, his slider was virtually unhittable and he added enough splitters to keep the Braves guessing. Eight of his nine strikeouts came after the start of the fourth inning, when he said things kicked in..

With Mussina, Wang and if we can start to count on Randy finally-then I think the bullpen is our primary need. I'd still take another starting pitcher, but I love the way Cashman has handled himself so far.
