Perhaps the greatest left-handed pitcher in baseball history, Randy Johnson became the first Arizona Diamondbacks player inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2015. How does he compare with the other pitchers of his era? NOTES: (1) Asterisk indicates the player is in the Hall of Fame. (2) Value metrics (ex. WAR, WAA, WPA) are rounded to the nearest whole number. For ranking purposes, players with the same whole number are considered tied. (3) In case of a tie for 10th place in a category, the clue will be denoted with a ^. For counting (rate) statistics, lower (higher) IP is used as the tiebreaker. Career WAR is the second tiebreaker for both.
