The Twins’ expected trade of ace Johan Santana has held up the industry the entire offseason. But trade speculation will really heat up now that it’s become known that the Twins want to get something done this week.
One thing that never changes in this sport: Things get done when there are deadlines involved. If the Twins want to deal Santana this week or before spring training, then the three teams interested should be ready to step forward now.
A reader alerted me to a report last night that Carlos Gomez had been pulled from winter ball. It’s led to speculation that a deal is close and Gomez is invovledl. Rotoworld claims its just a coincidence. I’m still looking into this.
