Pettitte’s Back, Yankees Out, Who Needs Johan? We do!

Last night the Red Sox exchanged medical information with the Twins about Jon Lester and Johan Santana, a sign these two clubs might be close to finalizing a deal. More on that later. But first…

Yesterday Andy Pettitte decided to come back for 2008 with the New York Yankees, giving the Yanks six solid starting pitchers. With the old Yankees, you might think this is bad news.

I used to think… Now that they have six starters they can easily move two guys for one top of the market guy, right?

Not these Yankees. Not the crafty Hank Steinbrenner. After negotiations failed, and Hanks deadline to the Twins past last night, it seems the Yankees are out of the Johan Santana race.

Are the Yankees really out? Possibly. They are holding thier ground and don’t want to budge. The Yankees don’t want to sweeten the deal anymore. So if the Twins come back to the table it’ll be about discussing the deal the Yankees had offered of Hughes, Melky Cabrera and a 3rd low level prospect.

During last nights trade talks…the Twins approached the Yankees with a proposal of P Philip Hughes, CF Melky Cabrera, P Jeff Marquez; and either P Alan Horne or OF Austin Jackson. The Yankees rejected the deal.

Bad move by them. Lets move one.

So last night the Red Sox also met with the Twins, and as said before Jon Lester and Johan Santana’s medical information were exchanged. A good sign the Twins are interested in the Red Sox players. You want more? Read Another post. This stuff is too exciting to put down here.
