Dodgers - Marlins make 6 player deal post #1  quote:



ESPN.com news services
As the clock continues to tick toward Saturday's 4 p.m. ET trading deadline, Randy Johnson's future is still up in the air. And that future could still include the Dodgers.



Johnson, still a member of the Diamondbacks, is expected to be wearing an Arizona uniform when he pitches against the Rockies tonight in Arizona.


However, the first phase in a scenario that might see Johnson sent to Los Angeles was completed Friday afternoon, ESPN's Peter Gammons reports.


The Florida Marlins traded pitcher Brad Penny, Hee Seop Choi and highly regarded Double-A pitcher Bill Murphy to the Dodgers for relief pitcher Guillermo Mota, catcher Paul Lo Duca and outfielder Juan Encarnacion.


If the Big Unit says yes to a trade to the Dodgers -- the D-Backs approached Johnson on Thursday again about accepting a possible deal to the Dodgers and Johnson said he would sleep on it, Gammons reported -- it would set in motion other trades that would also include outfielder Steve Finley being dealt.


The Dodgers could also acquire Finley in a three-team deal even if they don't get Johnson.


ESPN's Jim Bowden reported Friday that the Dodgers acquired catcher Charles Johnson from the Rockies, filling the void left when Lo Duca was sent to Florida in the Penny deal.


The Yankees, with serious pitching concerns, crave the Big Unit. But their top offer doesn't appear to interest the D-Backs enough.


The Mets, also looking for pitching help, acquired pitcher Victor Zambrano and a minor league pitcher from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays for pitcher Scott Kazmir and another minor leaguer.


ESPN.com's Jayson Stark reports the Padres have acquired first baseman/DH Brad Fullmer from to the Rangers for a minor leaguer to be named later.


Fullmer was put on the 15-day DL on Monday with a sore right knee, the same one he had surgery on last season.

What in the blue hell is DePodesta thinking? Yeah, he wants the Unit and possible Finley. I say screw that!

Lo Duca is- er, was the heart and soul of a HOT team that's one of the best clubs in the majors right now. They're absolutely on fire and are clicking on all cylinders. So what does the GM do? DISMANTELS them. How about last season when we didn't do crap?

I am so angry right now I can spit. This move is total clown shoes.
