Astros Interested in Randy Johnson

The Big Unit may be making a return to Houston. Jack Magruder reported the Astros were among a handful of teams who met with Johnson's representatives at the Winter Meetings.

The Angels also met with the Big Unit's little units this week, and the Dodgers, Giants, A's, Rangers, Brewers and Cubs met with the agents before the Winter Meetings.

Nolan Ryan confirmed interest and Magruder goes on to say that the Cubs seem to have the edge, particularly if a deal for Peavy falls through. But don't count out the Brewers who, having lost out on Sabathia, are now motivated to find other 6'6"+ pitchers.
