A paper in New York today reports
Randy Johnson's career with The Diamondbacks may be over in the next 24 hours, according to a major league official who says the left-hander has asked that a trade to the New York Yankees be completed in time for his next start on Friday.
With the actual trade dealine three days away, the Yankees remain the odds-on favorite to land the Big Unit, and may be employing a third team--either the Padres or Marlins--to close the deal.
In this theoretical swap, which is still a long shot, either San Diegoor Florida would get CF Steve Finley, whom the D-Backs are trying to trade. In anticipation of success, the Yankees have moved Jose Contreras up a day in the rotation, leaving Friday open for the Big Unit's debut in the Bronx
