The Big Unit in Orange and Black?

The Giants appear to be interested in Randy Johnson and he appears to be interested in the Giants. Both Brain Sabean and Johnson's agent have confirmed the mutual interest. Wow, this may be really good. Johnson can still pitch as evident last years 11-10 record with a 3.91 ERA last season in hitter friendly Arizona. Yes Johnson can still pitchand he wants a 1 year contract. Better yet. The Giants need to sign him. It will allow a slower progession of the talent in the minors (Pucetas, Alderson, Bumgarner) and not financially tie up the franchises recourses for Lincecum or hitters next season. Plus, at only 5 wins from 300, Johnson is a marketing dream. Oh yeah, and the Giants wouldn't lose to him next year. Between him pitching for them and Greg Maddux retiring, that's gotta mean 6-8 more wins for the Giants! Go get him Sabean.
