Like It Or Not......

This is from Twin Cities dot com......

"A little birdie says the Boston Red Sox have become the favorite in the Johan Santana trade sweepstakes.
The Twins would receive four players for the Twins' two-time Cy Young Award winner, including center fielder Coco Crisp, 28.
The New York Yankees don't have the prospects available who the Twins figure have a reasonable chance to play in the major leagues by the end of 2008."

Peter here. And I don't know WHAT to think. Obviously, the Sox will be adding one of the best lefthanded pitchers in the game...but to say goodbye to Jon Lester will be tough. Another quality arm in our rotation, and a lefty to boot, would be great. But I'll wait until the facts (just the facts, please) become more than a writer's musings. And I'll have much more to say then. The winter meetings start in less than four days......excitement is on the way. Good or bad? I'll leave that up to Theo.

Click on this post's title for the full article. Mixed feelings here, but if this deal comes true, the Yankees won't be adding anything. Not now. Including a world championship......

Here is something to think about. I was listening to ESPNradio 1410 today after 3:00pm and they had Tori Hunter talking trash, ( he admitted, stating what he was saying didn't come from the Angels front office), about the Angels swooping in and grabing Santana, like they did with him and Vladmar Guemera, (Sorry I know that is the spelling but you get who I'm talking about.) I was just wondering if that is an legitmate threat from the Angels prospective?

Hunter also stated that he never heard of jose stating anything about Boston, but said one of the reason that he might come to Beantown would be David Ortiz.

Hi Christopher. Frontrunners with the Sox are the Yankees, Dodgers AND Angels. And I don't know how to spell his name either! Big Papi would be a reason, but being favorites to win another world championship just might be the clincher for Johan.
