It's Yankees or the Highway for RB

Postby Patella Tendon » Thu Jul 15, 2004 3:26 pm

Johnson (who makes $16 million this season and next) has told the D-Backs, who have the worst record in the majors, he is willing to approve a deal to a contender. While various reports have Boston and Anaheim and even the Chicago teams interested in Johnson, the person close to Johnson said Arizona should understand that Johnson desires to go to the Yankees.

If Johnson would waive his no-trade clause only for the Yankees, that leaves a possible sticky situation.

A Diamondbacks source insisted they will have to be "overwhelmed" in any deal. But despite their public protests to the contrary, the Yankees are generally considered to have very little to offer in a trade.


Looks like Yankees or Bust - even though the Yankees might be a long shot too!

There are so many different sources saying so many different things... it'd be foolish to believe only one and ignore the rest. It's best to ignore them all ;-D
