First of all Johnson won't be traded
to the Yanks unless they get some other teams
involved. They don't have prospects anyone wants, that's why he wasn't in pinstripes this year. I think they will probably get him and Beltran though in the end.
Would you really want that pitching staff though? Johnson is old, Mussina is solid, but hasn't been exactly dominant IMO. The only real upside to that staff is Vazquez and Pavano, and I've yet to see them perform on a big stage yet. It's one thing in Montreal and Florida, another entirely in NY. Maybe I'm way out in left field on this one, but I'd rather have this years team over that one.
