The deals that would send Randy Johnson to the Yankees from the Diamondbacks and Shawn Green from the Dodgers to Arizona were approved Monday by Commissioner Bud Selig.

A 72-hour period for the Yanks to negotiate a contract extension with Johnson and the Diamondbacks to do the same with Green begins Tuesday morning. Both players have no-trade clauses in their current contracts, which each has a year to go at $16 million.

In the deal, the Diamondbacks would get pitchers Javier Vazquez and Brad Halsey, along with catcher Dioner Navarro and $8.5 million to $9 million in cash, in exchange for Johnson, the five-time Cy Young winner who has been coveted by the Yankees since prior to last July's non-waiver trade deadline.

i could care less. just makes football, and the salary cap, more attractive to me.

just seems like teams can be more competitive when they are on more level "playing fields"
