Randy Johnson, who was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Tuesday, said Wednesday that he'd vote for Edgar Martinez if he had a ballot.
Johnson and Martinez were teammates on the Seattle Mariners from 1989 to 1998.
"The first person that comes to my mind was a teammate of mine for 9½ years and the greatest hitter I ever played with," Johnson said. "I've faced a lot of Hall of Fame hitters, and my gosh, Edgar is the best hitter that I ever saw.
"I support him because he was my teammate, and I loved him, and he did so much for Seattle and made me look good during my career there. The first person on my ballot who would get my vote is Edgar. Yes, I'm campaigning for him. But isn't that always going to happen with these kinds of things?"
