One Step Closer

I don't think anyone in baseball realistically expects the Twins to be able to outbid the Yankees, Mets, Red Sox, and the rest of baseball for Johan Santana's services down the road. But when you read Santana's reaction to the Luis Castillo trade, money may not be the only reason Santana bids farewell to the Twin Cities. He may just want out.

Even for a boring trade deadline, the Mets acquiring Luis Castillo was fairly bland. But if we look back at this deal as the last straw that packed Johan's bags, then all of baseball will be grateful.

And if it turns out that Johan and Luis were good friends, let's start talking contract extension now whether he can play or not.
