The Sox will only be able to unload Lugo if they pick up 10 mil per year of his 9 mil per year salary.

He is a pretty good source.

I like the young prospects for the Twins...better than what the Yanks have to offer.

As opposed to this guy and his brilliant trade proposal

Quote:
If I'm the Twins' general manager, here's what I do. (And I'd do it under duress because I'd be working for a cheapskate owner.) I get on the horn with Boston Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein and say, "You want Johan Santana, right?"

Epstein likely will say, "Right."

Then I say, "Tell you what. I'll trade you Santana and Carlos Silva and Joe Nathan."

Then I wait for Epstein to pick the phone up off the floor, and I say, "I don't really want to part with Santana or Nathan, but my owner is a cheapskate and won't pay what it will take to sign them long term. So, you give me center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury, second baseman Dustin Pedroia, closer Jonathan Papelbon, starters Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz, and we've got a deal."

Presumably, Epstein will balk at giving up all that, so I'd tell him I need to get off the phone so I can call the Yankees. He'd come around because getting Santana and Nathan, particularly Santana, pretty much would ensure the Red Sox of several more trips to the World Series. And with that offense backing him up, Silva would help, too.

Meantime, the Twins significantly reduce their payroll, making owner Carl Pohlad giddy, and they get one of the game's best young center fielders (Ellsbury), the game's best young closer (Papelbon), a terrific young second baseman (Pedroia) and two promising young pitchers (Lester and Buchholz).

I have just one question: What's Twins general manager Bill Smith waiting for? He should have

wow, what a great deal.

Now that all of New England is reading Twin Cities newspapers, check out startribune.com - it is the better of the two papers.

winter meetings


take heart, yankee haters.

even if they manage to snag johan... hank steinbrenner is doing some serious damage to their future negotiating power this offseason.

we won't negotiate if a-rod opts out!

ahh shcucks... what the hell, here's 300 million.

we will not negotiate a santana trade after monday!

Steinbrenner's stance had softened by 12:45 a.m., as he said: "We'll sleep on it. Whatever it is, we'll discuss it one final time. "

Mr. Hankey is putting out quite the image for the Yanks in his short time at the reigns, maybe he should let his brother Shallow Hal take some of the spotlight.

Cashman's contract expires in 2008. He does seem to resemble some sort of disabled water fowl to me.

He was alive as of a week ago sunday, I sat two rows behind him at mass.

And just this past weekend, I met Pete Gas of WWE Mean Street Posse at a bar.

Hooray for living in Fairfield County.

The Tigers just became favorites to win it all.
(Hopefully that'll change soon if Santananana gets traded to Boston)

I'm flabbergasted by that Florida/Detroit trade.

Wow.
