Sorry for the delay, but holiday preparations (and a toilet repair today) made it hard for me to stay on schedule.
I spoke with several people today who told me nothing is close regarding a trade of Johan Santana (although that one phone call) could be happening as I write this (O.K. Tyler, are you happy now?). In fact, one person told me that nothing has happened since the end of the winter meetings.
(I’m sure some of you are thinking, “what about the Yankees getting involved, that’s certainly constitutes something”. True but, I like I’ve written before, the Twins never felt the Yanks were officially out of it.)
The Twins are still waiting for that good deal, and it was mentioned to me again today that they are willing to have Santana in a Twins uniform next season rather than make a bad deal.
Anyway, I did write a story for tomorrow’s ink editions, in which I also mentioned the names of a couple pitchers the Twins have sniffed around at. Make sure to check it out.
