Just as the Cross of Coronado belongs in a museum, Johan Santana belongs on the Twins.
MLB Trade Rumors remarks upon early speculation on Santana's future:
Mets And Johan Santana?
Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press throws it down:
"Don't be surprised if the New York Mets, and not the Yankees, end up with Johan Santana for $20 million a year after the Twins' Cy Young Award winner becomes a free agent after the 2008 season"....
Of course, this story from January 29th should not be ignored. The Twins will approach Santana about a contract extension, and Santana is willing to work something out.
As MLBTR says, "He's only the best pitcher in baseball."
Here's hoping Terry Ryan can devise a way to retain Santana at a fair price—as fun as it is dreaming about Johan in blue, even this Dodger fan thinks Santana should be a Twins lifer.
