    Randy Johnson's rocky stay in New York may be ending after two seasons. The Yankees are talking to several clubs about possibly trading Johnson and are inclined to make a deal, according to baseball officials. ... San Diego right now appears to be the most likely destination for the five-time Cy Young Award winner, but the Dodgers, Angels and Diamondbacks are all said to be in the mix. One of the officials, familiar with the ongoing discussions, used the phrase "several bona fide offers" to describe what the Yankees are mulling and said the Yankees probably would not have to include any money. In exchange for Johnson, it's possible the Yankees could be looking at San Diego reliever Scott Linebrink, a righthander they've always liked.

    I think he would cost the Padres too much. Big money AND Scotty for a run-down, worn-out pitcher with no upside, who had a 5.00ERA last season. Why else would the Spankees be trying to get rid of him? They know he's done.

    Wells is worn-down, etc. But he wouldnt cost us what the Bird Killer would cost. Maddux is pretty old as well, but hes a location pitcher who can eat alot of innings.

    I agree 100%

    I would not trade (Using a WWE Character) for this.

    Scotty To Hotty Linebrink is a big no no to trade in my book. Scotty To Hotty is to much of a value as our setup man for Hells Bells Trevor Time.

    I get the feeling that because the diamondbacks are the primary suitors this is an attempt to seriously drive up the price of Johnson

    I hope you are right. Johnson wants to be closer to his home in AZ, so the Snakes are closer...

    This falls into the "Not just no, but FUK NO!" category.

    The guy is done and the Yanks just want to dump him and his bloated salary on some schmuck.

    Give up Linebrink?? Are you freaking kidding me?
