Big Unit to the Yankees possibly

Postby Rico The Retard » Wed Jul 28, 2004 2:19 pm

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

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Are you trying to tell me that RJ is on the market and that the Yankees are interested?

Where'd you get this?

And why am I just hearing it now?
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

Sounds alot like this from Rotoworld...except this is from Denver.


The Denver Post cites a Bergen 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 $3 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. Jul. 28 - 8:09 am et
