Randy, We Hardly Knew Ye... 

You know, it's one thing for the New York press to make up a story (according to one of Randy Johnson's agents) that said Johnson was telling D-Back teammates he was heading to the Yankees.

It's another thing to write an article about your new star pitcher... before the deal is even done.

I'm not a believer in the baseball gods (hubris is not limited to the diamond), but shouldn't you wait until the ink is on the paper before you build him up (let alone tear him down)?

(Thanks to The Sports Economist for the link to the New York Times article.)
