Jan 29, 2008 7:38 am - Buzz: Your Morning Santana, Twins in Action

...posted by Matthew Cerrone...

The Mets, Red Sox and Yankees all confirm that during the last two days the Twins have stepped up their effort to trade Johan Santana, writes Joel Sherman in the New York Post.

According to Sherman, it has come down to a battle between the Mets and Red Sox.

Of course, in a post to his blog for the Boston Herald today, Sox columnist Michael Silverman writes…

“By all accounts, the Red Sox will not shed any tears if the Mets get Santana and the Sox can keep their young talent, maintain payroll and avoid seeing Santana in pinstripes.”

Meanwhile, the O’s appeared quite close to trading Erik Bedard to the Mariners, but may have changed their mind.

For more, go to MLB Trade Rumors, who has been doing an outstanding job, as usual, following the negotiations step by step.

In the Daily News, Bill Madden and Anthony McCarron explain how the Bedard deal might make it harder for the Mets to pry Santana from Minnesota.

…i understand, but the O’s should get more for bedard than the Twins will get for santana, the same way the A’s should have and did get more for Dan Haren…i mean, bedard is under contract for two more seasons, while santana is such after one – plus he has a no trade and can essentially dictate when and where he goes…

According to Madden and McCarron, several baseball officials believe the Mets will get Santana, “But they might have to ‘flood the deal’ with players to satisfy the Twins in the wake of the likely Bedard trade.”

…first off, they’ll pay what they have to pay…and, again, if santana forces the issue, the Twins will take what they can get…second, and more importantly, Madden and McCarron’s sounds like it’d be a great steak house…

Nevertheless, Sherman quotes an official from one team involved as saying, “The Mets are legitimately in this. It would be a mistake to minimize their chances.”

Lastly, a Sox official tells the Boston Globe that he would not be surprised if the Twins end up making a deal this week.

Last night on SNY’s Mets Hot Stove Report, host Kevin Burkhardt talked about the Santana Situation with Adam Rubin of the Daily News and Ed Coleman from WFAN.

This site and others will likely take a massive blow in hits per day when this whole Santana things is settled. I think I refresh/check this site and others like it, roughly 50-70 times a day

yea id rather not get the best pitcher in baseball for unproven prospects..instead get already peaked over-weight so-called innings eater in which he cleary likes to eat alot but throws batting practice every 5 days. Yea i dont really want to pay a salary that will be a market value in a few years for the best pitcher in baseball that will make our team instantly better….yeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaa

Agreed. I would only make a move for Santana if it could be done without involving any of Gomez, MArtinez and Guerra. It might be impossible and people will say that its not even a real offer, but so be it. Thats ok with me. Even if we picked up santana without giving up any of those “big 3″, I still wouldnt even consider giving him a 7 year deal. Most gaurunteed years I would offer is 5. If 7 years was a deal breaker to make a trade final once we got the negotiating window, and he wouldnt sign for 5, I would pull the plug. There is a more then fair chance that Johan even in 4 years wont be the same Johan he is right now. If he really wants to play for the Mets so bad as we have heard (which I still say is bull), then he could Kobe Bryant the Twins into making them trade him here and making his wishes to play here known publically. He could also veto a deal where he though Bill Smith was getting too many parts like Kobe did. Just remember one thing. Be careful what you wish for, because with a trade like this one comes incredible risk.
