Twins And Red Sox Continue Talks On Santana

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Tuesday that the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox are still engaged in talks concerning Twins starter Johann Santana. According to the reports, Boston has offered two different packages trying to entice the Twins. Bo-Sox have put one deal headed up by starting pitcher Jon Lester, the other package would have center fielder Jacob Ellsbury as the center. Minnesota, who lost their center fielder Torrii Hunter to free agency are said to be favoring the deal featuring Ellsbury.

Boston, who won the World Series, would have one of the top starting rotations in all of MLB if they add Santana to their staff. Boston already has 20 game winner Josh Beckett, ageless wonder Curt Schilling, and Japanese import Daisuke Matsuzaka in the rotation. If the Red Sox could acquire Santana, the staff would hearken back to legendary starting rotation of the Baltimore Orioles. Boston is almost a guaranteed sold-out game in most opponent's stadiums, where Major League Baseball Tickets become an even more valuable commodity, they could just about sell All-Star Game Tickets with that rotation. They would also have to be prohibitive favorites to be able sell World Series Game Tickets if they acquire one of MLB's best starters.
