Randy Johnson will decide by Monday



Four teams remain in contention for Randy Johnson, who intends to decide by Monday where he'll pitch next season.

Johnson, perhaps the most intimidating pitcher in baseball, is still dealing with the Anaheim Angels, Arizona Diamondbacks, Los Angeles Dodgers and Texas Rangers.

"We're still considering the four teams," Barry Meister, one of Johnson's agents, said Friday. "We'll make a decision no later than Monday."

Johnson appears set to get a four-year deal with an average salary in excess of $12 million per season.
