Johnson Deal Imminent
According to the Post, the Yankees are close on a one year deal with the next Carl Pavano, Nick Johnson. The deal is for one year, and probably around $6M. Considering Johnson can't play in the field w/o seriously hurting himself, this signing suggests that if Matsui had waited a week he'd be back in pinstripes. This also may be a sign that the Yanks are done waiting for Damon to realize he's old as hell. Consider this from Joel Sherman. The Yankees will now turn their attention to finding another starter, if only to avoid making Posada angry.
