The Yankees are in discussions with the Arizona Diamondbacks about sending Randy Johnson back to the team for which he starred in 1999-2004, according to a baseball official.

The official, who works for a third team but has spoken to people involved in negotiations, asked not to be identified because of the confidential nature of his discussions.

"They're talking," the official said. [star ledger]

  • They're reporting here that the deal was all but dead as the sides couldn't agree on players, but the Padres stepped in because there's a prospect or two they really like from Arizona. The most recent credible report I hear is Scott Linebrink + Chad Tracy to NY, Johnson + $7M to AZ, 2 unnamed AZ prospects (not Jackson) to SD, Jeff Karstens to SD.

    Of course anything can happen, but to me this probably means the Yankees will be replacing an old tall, skinny asshole in their rotation with an older, fat asshole for a one year deal. You know the fatty pants of whome I speak.

  • If trading RJ clears a path for Hughes/Sanchez I'm down.

  • Hi Lupe.

    Why can't they get a position player for RJ? The Yankees are stocked with RH pitching prospects.

  • The more quality pitching prospects you have, the better.

  • As a general rule, I would agree, but the Yankees desperately need a near major league ready catching prospect to apprentice under Po as he did under Girardi, and another 1B prospect would be nice as well.

  • Yes, however as neither the D'Back or Padres have/are willing to trade a catcher, you can always use your pitching chips to acquire one.
