Randy Johnson Being Shopped By The Yankees
I hope you all had a great holiday on this Monday......err, Tuesday morning. Seems like Monday, doesn't it? And news of the possible trade of RJ is big....this from the NY Post......
"BIG DEAL?: An agent for Randy Johnson has confirmed a Post report that the Yankees have talked trade with Arizona concerning the star left-hander.
December 26, 2006 -- Randy Johnson could be leaving the Yankees after just two seasons.
The Yankees have started trade talks with several teams, including the Diamondbacks, although it is too early to tell whether the discussions will lead to a deal.
Talks were confirmed yesterday by a baseball official who had knowledge of them and spoke on condition of anonymity because they are in the preliminary stage."
Peter here. RJ, who was 34-19 in his two checkered years with the Yankees and 0-1 with an ERA near seven (!) in the post season, would be the third lefty in the Yank's rotation, after Pettitte and Igawa, making him dispensible. I for one hope the Yankees are not able to rid themselves of the lanky lefty. Why? Because I think at best he would be a .500 pitcher this year. But any such thoughts are pure conjecture.
Enjoy your Monday-like Tuesday, everyone. I'll be back if there is any baseball news ANYWHERE. A tall order!
