Arizona is being too greedy for sure. But consider that (1) they got burned bad on the Schilling deal last year and (2) the Yankees have all but invited such greed by foolishly announcing to the world that the Unit was their "number one priority." I'm a Yankee fan, but come on -- this is a foolish negotiating strategy that gives Arizona too much leverage. Arizona knows that the Yanks are desperate for the Unit and are trying to take advantage. When you are looking to buy a car, you don't walk into the dealership and announce that you love their car and have to have it. That's just idiotic but no different than what the Yanks have done with Randy.
I think think the Unit will be traded. He's a keeper on my team so, for fantasy points, I've been hoping he'll go to St. Louis. I've been salivating at the prospect of that team, with their hitting and defense, behind Randy's dominant pitching. WOW! Can you say 25-game winner?
If he goes to the Yanks, he'll also win a lot of games but I would expect his numbers would drop a little because of the DH rule in the AL.
