Unit Trade Not Done Yet

There have been a handful of reports that the Randy Johnson trade is complete.  However, the New York Daily News reports that the deal has hit a snag over money.

The Diamondbacks want the Yanks to kick in some cash, and they also want some of the deferred money they already owe Johnson to be factored into the extension.  So there's still some financial ground to cover.  Jon Heyman of SI.com indicates that Johnson wants a one-year, $12MM extension.

The general structure of the deal seems in place - two or three of Dustin Nippert, Micah Owings, Ross Ohlendorf, and Brandon Medders.  However, it appears the the Padres could still sneak in.

The New York Post believes that Brian Cashman may be stockpiling prospects with a future trade for Johan Santana or Dontrelle Willis in mind.  That paper also mentions that the Diamondbacks are only offering minor leaguers for Johnson.
