Bad news for you then. Randy Johnson shot down a trade to the Dodgers within the last couple of days. The D-Backs were so sure it was complete that they went to him and asked him to waive his no-trade and he declined! He is saying Yankees or bust now. Funny thing is, a kid from my high school who's in the Dodgers system was supposed to be part of the deal.
I don't know if I like the Yankees trading for him. Sure, the guy is a gamer. But the D-Backs want Jorge Posada, who is arguably the second best catcher in baseball. I don't know if I'd do it. It would be the first instance of the Yanks trading one of their big home-grown players. It would almost be like them trading Jeter, to put it in perspective.
