The Yankees have expressed interest in these players: Luis Vizcaino, Brandon Meddows, Micah Owings, Russ Ohlendorf, and Dustin Nippert.
The teams have not agreed on specific players.
My thoughts: The Diamondbacks have some young and unreliable starters and an ugly logo. The Yankees have absolutely no need for Johnson. This deal would affect the Yankees in a negative
way in the clubhouse (losing a great team leader and a mentor to the rooks) and a positive way in the Box Score. Now for the Diamondbacks this deal will give them a positive effect in the clubhouse and on the field. He would be reunited with his old teammates and he would be back in the National League. I think that the only reason that Johnson has been performing so terribly the last couple of years was the fact that he was in the American League. And he would be back where he threw his perfect game. I hope this deal goes down: Yankees get: RP Luis Vizcaino, RP Brandon Meddows, and cash considerations. Diamondbacks get: SP Randy Johnson and P Jeff Karstens.
