You may've seen the crawl on ESPNews or even read it in another thread a few minutes ago, but New York Newsday is reporting the Yankees have finally acquired Hall of Fame lefty Randy Johnson in a bizarre three-way deal.

The Yankees send Javy Vazquez and the last vestiges of the Yankee farm system in catcher Dioner Navarro and third baseman Eric Duncan to the Dodgers, with L.A. flipping pitchers Brad Penny and Yhency Brazoban and former Jay Shawn Green to Arizona.

That's right, Tim Hudson traded today and it's not the top pitching storyline in the news. Thoughts on the deal? Discuss.

Update by Joe: The deal is not as "done" as some were reporting.
