Randy Johnson?

The Yankees are shopping Randy Johnson hard. They are said to want three pitchers in return. None of the stories say what they would be willing to pay his 2007 salary, but I presume that will depend on the quality of the pitchers they can get. Assuming the Twins don't give up much and get the Yankees to pay most of his salary, he'd be a perfect fit for the Twins--a one-year stop-gap until Liriano is ready to go. So, the question is, what would you be willing to give up for Johnson, both in players and in a portion of what is owed him by the Yankees?

I say we send Baker, Simonitsch and Guerrier to the Yanks for Johnson, and they pay all but $2 million of his salary. That's about as much as I would be willing to send, considering his health and rapidly declining effectiveness.
