The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away 

Three short years after the Arizona Diamondbacks won the World Series, Randy Johnson has given hints that he wants to leave Arizona and be traded to the New York Yankees. Of course, his agent has officially denied such allegations.

If Johnson really does want out, this would be a bit sad. Ray Bourque asked out of Boston, but that was after 20 seasons of championship-free hockey with the Boston Bruins. Joe Dumars stood by the Detroit Pistons after the Bad Boys started going south. Dan Marino lost one Super Bowl with Miami, and never got within sniffing distance of another for the rest of his career.

And really, who's to say that the Diamondbacks can't be a contender next year? Last-to-first seasons are always possible in baseball, unless you're the Montreal Expos.
