Arizona has failed to reach an agreement with Shawn Green on a proposed contract extension by the noon deadline imposed by Los Angeles. As such, Green has refused to waive his no-trade close and the Dioner Navarro/William Juarez for Green deal is off, for now at least.

LA are obviously desperate to unload Green and while his 2004 salary will be daunting to most, don’t be surprised if one or more of the runners-up for Carlos Beltran, Magglio Ordonez or Carlos Delgado turn their attention to the Dodgers 1B/outfielder.
