He is Definitely a Player you should watch.He has one of the slowest heartbeat of any Player you will meet. 

Funny story

When Randy played travel Baseball way back in the day, More than one Coach would approach me from time to time and ask "Does Randy even want to play Baseball?" to which I would reply, "That's all he wants to do"

They would say something like, He sure don't get Excited about it.

This is Randy in a nutshell. after throwing his First Ever No Hitter.Watch his reaction

Are you down in Florida now? If so, introduce yourself to Seth. He’s pretty much down on the minor league fields most of the day.
