The entire cafe expects an apology from you for posting nothing but crap so far. (Giles is worthless.....). But, because I'm a nice guy and my momma raised me with good manners, I will apologize to you in this case.....

I have to agree with GM fatguy you haven't posted anything that makes much sense so far.

The package offered was Mota, Werth, Billingsley and Tiffany. No wonder the D'Backs accepted...that's a good value for a guy that's 41 and wants out.

Unfortunately for 'Zona, RJ declined.

I'll agree with FatGuy on this one. I'm quickly losing respect for Unit as little more than a guy looking to take only the sure thing with the Yankees (at least in terms of reaching the post season). Moreover, the revelations that he's possibly going to intententionally become a clubhouse cancer if forced to stay in Arizona are very troubling.

No different than Malone and Payton this year with the Lakers. And if RJ continues to stamp his feet and insist that it's his way or else, I hope he gets the same result as Malone and Payton.

RJ is a clown if he'd rather stay in 'Zona than go to LA or Anaheim.

I hope he goes to the Yankees and they still lose. That would make it so much more sweet. Just like when the Lakers got dominated despite starting 4 HoF.

The Yankees now believe that Randy Johnson will stay with the Arizona Diamondbacks past the trading deadline, a development that would be a devastating blow to a team with a shaky starting rotation.

Officials from several teams, including the Yankees, said on Wednesday that Johnson seemed most likely to remain in Arizona, despite his desire to be traded to the Yankees. The Diamondbacks have acted as if they want to keep Johnson, failing to tell the Yankees what it would take to acquire him. They have also not made a serious effort to find other interested teams to which Johnson would accept a trade.



This all seems like posturing to me...LA's phenomenal package is out there, so the Yankees will pony up more...the Yankees are saying it won't get done so they don't seem over confident... I don't think Arizona wants an angry expensive pitcher on their books for next year, especially if they're not playing any better -- at that point, he may just ride it out in the offseason and not approve deals to any teams and let them pay him and be stuck and cause more problems...I think this will go down to the wire and that way they can screw Randy a bit by making him wait...a big game of chicken...

Gammons is an idiot for reporting that supposed Dodgers offer...no offer was ever made according to RJ's agent:

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/07/29/sport ... de.html?hp

But Meister also denied a report that said Johnson had exercised his no-trade clause to block a possible deal to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Diamondbacks reportedly had sought two major leaguers, catcher Paul Lo Duca and reliever Guillermo Mota, from the Dodgers.


Where does he come up with this stuff?!??
