The AP is reporting that that Yankees have pulled out of trade talks for Randy Johnson because the Diamondbacks were asking for too much.
According to the AP, Arizona originally asked the Yankees for Javier Vazquez, $18.5 million, four or five prospects and one of the following 10 pitchers that the Yankees would have to acquire separately: Tim Hudson, Barry Zito, A.J. Burnett, Jeremy Bonderman, Ted Lilly, Edwin Jackson, Scott Kazmir, Shawn Chacon, Jason Jennings and Kenny Rogers. Arizona apparently was willing to settle for Tom Gordon instead of an outside pitcher, but they wanted Brad Halsey, too, and the Yankees weren't willing to pay the price at this time. Talks will probably be restarted at some point, but the Yankees could take this opportunity to jump into the bidding for Pedro Martinez. Dec. 1 - 9:17 pm et
