Imagine, for a moment, Randy Johnson in Atlanta’s early-1990s rotation next to Tom Glavine, John Smoltz, Steve Avery and (maybe) Greg Maddux. Could have happened, folks. The Braves picked the tall lefty with the ridiculous fastball — ridiculous because of its speed and the pitcher’s inability to control it early in his career — in the fourth round (one spot before the Royals drafted Will Clark, but more on that in a moment) but Johnson turned down the club’s signing bonus offer of $50,000 .

The more I get comfortable the faster I’ll be able to go. … Today I got a good feel for my first day back and tomorrow I look forward to being faster.
Snead’s 4.22 came at Tennessee’s pro day last year, enough to intrigue teams. If he had done it at the Scouting Combine, it would have tied John Ross’s event record.
