The Denver Post cites a Bergen (N.J.) Record report that Randy Johnson has asked the Diamondbacks to trade him to the Yankees in time for his Friday start.
The Yankees may be employing a third team - possibly the Padres - to close the deal. San Diego would get Steve Finley as part of the 3-way trade, with prospects from both the Yankees and Padres going to Arizona. The Yankees have moved Jose Contreras up a day in rotation in anticipation of Johnson filling Friday's spot. However, there's a lot more to the story: The Yankees are willing to take on the salaries of Roberto Alomar and Matt Mantei, which would free up another $8 million for Arizona. However, the D'Backs are believed to still prefer the Angels' offer, and might force Johnson to take that or nothing. Johnson, meanwhile, is said to be threatening to be a disruptive presence in the clubhouse if forced to stay in Arizona. This could still get ugly before it's resolved.

I started a new thread (now deleted) before I saw you posted this. This sounds like RJ is pretty much demanding a trade...I no longer think he'll be a Diamondback very much longer.

Awesome, thanks. As much as I don't like the Yankees, his fantasy value is about to skyrocket.

daaags... that's a lotta payroll.. but it would make sense for the yanks if they get mantei, alomar, johnson. you'd get your bullpen help (when mantei is healthy again), permanent 2B (alomar will probly play well since he'll be motivated), and your bonafide #1 starter (and a lefty) ;-7
