ESPN...As Of 1:20 PM EST......

Or, who knows what the Twinkies and their front office's thought processes are. If any!? But right now, this is what I read.....

"While Hank Steinbrenner set deadlines and publicly lusted after Johan Santana, the Red Sox just bided their time and stayed in the game.
And what do you know? As Monday night turned into Tuesday morning at the winter meetings, suddenly it was the Red Sox who loomed as the favorites to pull off a deal for the best pitcher in baseball.
ESPN the Magazine's Buster Olney reported early Tuesday that the Twins asked the Red Sox for permission to review the medical records of pitcher Jon Lester, amid indications a Red Sox-Twins trade could go down sometime during the early-morning hours.
If the Twins were satisfied with Lester's medicals, it's believed they would accept a swap of him, Coco Crisp, shortstop prospect Jed Lowrie and either highly regarded pitching prospect Justin Masterson or another player.
Or if the Twins reversed field and decided they wanted center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury instead, it's believed that would be a 3-for-1 trade -- with only Ellsbury, Masterson and Lowrie going to Minnesota.
However, the Red Sox apparently remained adamant that while either Ellsbury or Lester was available, they would trade one or the other -- but not both."

PETER here....and hey! I think the "best pitcher in baseball" is our guy Josh "Baseball" Beckett. But I think the Twins are being much too much full of themselves. So may I say this? "F" them! We'll see what happens...and I meant what I just typed!!!! I'll keep you posted, as my complete disgust grows for that team from Minnesota, and their rich owner who only relies on the Minnesota taxpayers to fund all his bills! What a dork!! And I think the Sox are playing this charade exactly just RIGHT!!!!!!! Silent and effective. Stay tuned!! And thanks for sticking around.......minutes seem like hours. It might all be worth it, because the Twinkies are painting themselves into a corner, an inescapable one. POUNCE, THEO. And the Sox will!!!
