D-Backs get fleeced in Big Unit trade 

The Yanks, reportedly, get the Big Unit.

And Jeff Moorad continues having a terrible offseason.

The Yankees are giving up Javier Vazquez -- considered a legitimate #1 starter as recently as July -- along with top prospects Eric Duncan and Dioner Navarro to get Randy Johnson.

However, for some unexplainable reason, the D-Backs aren't getting Vazquez, Navarro and Duncan.

Instead, the Dodgers have been brought in to make this a three-way deal, and are sending Shawn Green (and his awful contract), Brad Penny (and his arm problems), and Yhency Brazoban to the D-Backs.

As a poster on a Rangers message board noted, only the D-Backs could trade Randy Johnson and still increase their payroll.

This is an absolute trainwreck of a deal for Arizona, a complete, unmitigated disaster.

It is a steal for the Dodgers.

I have a hard time believing this.
