The crack staff reports that the official offer for Johan Santana is as follows:

  • Carlos Gomez
  • Fernando Martinez
  • Kevin Mulvey
  • Mike Pelfrey
  • Phil Humber
  • Hector Pellot
  • Deolis Guerra
  • Mike Carp
  • Ryan Church
  • Johnny Estrada
  • Brian Bohanon
  • The Savannah Sand Gnats
  • John Maine's impersonator
  • The cat from the tarp
  • Roger Cedeno
  • Timo Perez
  • Chad Pennington
  • Peter Forsberg
  • Al Yeganeh's recipe for Seafood Gumbo
  • The publishing rights to "Metography"
  • A partridge in one of New York's finest pear trees
  • Kirk Radomski's black book
  • Five Junior's Cheesecakes and a Red Velvet Cake from Cake Man Raven

    Jon Heyman reports that Boston can top that offer if they include Clay Buchholz.

    Why don't we throw in Mo Vaughn and Bobby Bonilla? I think that we're still paying them.

    This blog has everything: cute animals, cuisine, cross-dressing, AND baseball.
    I always assumed baseball blogs were where people argue ad nauseum about who should play right field next year. How wrong I was.
    Along those lines though, I hope we don't get Fukudome to play right field, no matter how good he is, as I wouldn't enjoy a whole season of hearing his name mispronounced by the color commentators.

    That's one wacked-out picture of Santana!

    I would love to hear how Ralph Kiner would pronounce Fukudome.

    The espn article tonight seems to throw ice-water on them picking up Livan Hernndez or any of the other C-level pitching that's available. I guess we're going with Pelfrey/Humber/Mulvey competing for the 5 spot (and the 2 spot - when el Duque gets hurt again at a crucial point in the season.)

    Metstradamus...there was actually a rumor floating around on the MLB Trade Rumors blog that the Yankees and Sox were effectively playing themselves out of the Santana sweepstakes. Also, Omar (supposedly) said that nobody on the list of players the Twins submitted as "coveted" were considered by the Mets to be "off-limits" so we could assume that a deal could get done without including Reyes...

    Don't give up hope...and if all else fails we could swing a deal to trade for an Orioles'll probably be Victor Zambrano again though and not Bedard.
