Nothing groundbreaking here, but Ken Davidoff spoke to "an industry offical familiar with Minnesota's trade discussions," who believes the inclusion of young outfielder Fernando Martinez could close the Johan Santana deal for the Mets. Davidoff notes that some combination of Carlos Gomez, Deolis Guerra, Philip Humber, and Kevin Mulvey would have to be in there too. Perhaps the sides will ultimately agree on Martinez and all the rest except for Gomez.
The Yankees and Red Sox remain in the mix, though the Yanks seem ready to move on.

The A's and Twin's have been getting prospects for years and have not won a World Series with that process. Yes, they get talent but not all the talent they trade for equates to All star players. When they do get players who are superb and the A's or Twins actually get into contention then they trade the super stars for more prospects and the rebuilding process starts all over again without anything to show for it but a low revenue team. Just my opinion of course. I don't mean to offend any of the fans of these teams. I just feel like as soon as the team is prepared to make a run at the playoffs they are trading their high priced super stars for minor league talent and out of the race again. Kind of depressing to me as a fan...
