Last night news broke that the Yankees were in trade discussions with the Minnesota Twins for Hall-of-Fame-tracked SP Johan Santana. Very little beyond that was offered.
Here is what the local papers are saying about the Johan news.
Boston, which would love to block Santana from heading to the Bronx, has the prospects to make a deal, starting with pitchers Clay Buchholz and Jon Lester. But Boston sources say the Red Sox are unwilling to part with rookie center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury, a player the Twins covet.
That's not the only thing on the Yankees' plate. They have talked internally about trying to trade for the Athletics' Dan Haren and are working to upgrade their bullpen via free agency.
