As a rumor website I feel obligated to link to this. The Yankees and Twins are talking about a Johan Santana trade, Hank Steinbrenner confirmed it.
This is a non-story; I don’t have much to add. We have all known about these discussions for quite a while now. It’s odd that Steinbrenner talked about them publicly; would Brian Cashman find that helpful at all?
My feeling is that if the Yankees can engineer a trade for Santana without surrendering Robinson Cano, Phil Hughes, or Joba Chamberlain, they’ve pulled off a steal.
