Jay: Soxy Santana

One of the reason I LOVE baseball, is the season never ends. I realize this could be irrelevant in a few days, but the Red Sox offer of Lester, Crisp, Jed Lowery(AAA SS), and either Micheal Bowden or Justin Masterson(both AA pitchers) for Johan Santana is an absolute steal. I still think the Yanks can top that package, but will they is a whole other question. Frankly, the Yankees need Santana more then the Sox. A rotation of Beckett, Santana, Schill, Dice-k, Wake/Clay is by far the best in MLB. Honestly, I don’t care about the money either. The Sox make a ton, and put the profits back into the team. That’s the way it should be. The Twins CAN afford to Keep Johan, the problem is their owner, Carl Pohlad is worth 4.1 Billion. The Twins receive 20-30 million a year in revenue sharing and have a loyal fan base. Is it better for the Twins to pay and keep Johan, absolutely, but I won’t complain if they give him up for .75 on the dollar. The rest of MLB better hope the Sox don’t land the best pitcher this side of Beckett, because it would put the Olde Town team on the cusp of a dynasty(I’m giddy just writing that).
