It seems these Randy Johnson trade talks are super serious, but the major sticking point is...money.
Paying Arizona too much of Johnson's contract would make it harder for the Yanks to dole out money for Roger Clemens. Look for them to pay a sizeable chunk, though, real soon. I would expect some big news in the next week or so. The faster this process goes, the better it is for Cashman as he decides his next step.
