    What about the Unit?

    Its being reported that the yankees might consider trading Johnson to make room for clemens, pavano or even hughes. Personally I doubt they will trade him, maybe in July it could be more possible. But he is due 16 mill this year, at that price with his health issues they probably wont get to much for him. A couple of avg prospects most likely. So would you take the risk for 16 million dollars?

    I would be suprised if they could only get a couple of average prospects for him.

    I bet they'd pay some of his contract to get more, but he hasn't exactly been his old self the last few seasons, and he does have a NTC, so that could complicate matters.

    True but with pitching being at such a premium now a days, even a run down Randy Johnson is somewhat valuable.

    I think it depends on the price, but looking at how the Reds rotation stands now, I'd at least have to consider it.

    I'd have serious problems if WK brought in another pitcher who will up the average age pf the pitching staff. There aren't many out there who could do it...but Randy could.

    yeah, chalk me up for a big "no thanks". He's too fragile of a personality to deal with the local media.

    Re: What about the Unit?

    I'll say this, though, if the Yanks are really looking just to get rid of Pavano and pay most of his salary I think the Reds should consider it. If they get him for what would effectively be 2 years/8M or so that's the kind of high-risk gamble I'd be inclined to endorse.

    Good god man, this is a family board. Such rude questions asking about the unit.

    Serriously...pass. He's past his "purchase by this date for freshness" date.

    I look at it this way:

    Randy Johnson>Eric Milton

    I look at it this way:

    Randy Johnson = 2 Eric Milton's on the payroll.

    Randy Johnson = Eric Milton in the risk of injury dept.

    Randy Johson > Eric Milton, in age.

    Randy Johnson blowing up pidgeons with his fastball = good.

    Randy Johnson being old enough to be injured by a flying pidgeon "fastball" = bad.
