Padres Treating Pitching Staff Like Fine Wine?

From's "Truth & Rumors" column:

The Padres have made a more attractive offer for Randy Johnson than the Diamondbacks, but the Yankees will trade Johnson only if they consider it a good baseball move.
-- Newark Star-Ledger

Are the Padres trying to out-age the Giants in adding the 43-year-old Johnson to a pitching staff that already features Greg Maddux, who'll turn 41 in April? It'll be interesting to see if Johnson will waive his no-trade clause for anyone except the Diamondbacks.
