The Los Angeles Dodgers reversed course Tuesday and withdrew from the proposed three-team, 10-player deal that would have sent Johnson from the Arizona Diamondbacks to the Yankees. 'As we sit here right now, the deal is no more,' Dodgers general manager Paul DePodesta said during a conference call. 'I've been saying all along that we weren't going to do the deal unless it made sense for this club in 2005, and that was not the case.'"
