Well, At Least It Wasn't Boston. Or the Yankees

News Item: Twins complete tentative trade of Santana to Mets.

It's for Carlos Gomez and pitchers Kevin Mulvey, Deolis Guerra and Phil Humber, and NOT Fernando Martinez. Gomez had BETTER be good, is all I can say.

I'm not happy about this, of course. But, as I suggested last August, perhaps this will be a reenactment of the Frank Viola trade in 1989, which led directly to the Twins' second championship two years later.

You may hate it, but I'm quite happy about it. I hope the deal works out for both of our teams.

Amen. I can only hope that we meet in the World Series one day... and Johan starts games 1, 4, and if necessary 7 for the Mets.
I'll take those odds.
