I gotta admit...that as much as I want Santana I really would rather not go after him at this point.
The Trade would create problems for the Yankees starting with OF Defense and then trading away the guy who was supposed to be the Future Ace of the staff. Then to top it off it's going to cost somewhere in the $100M Range just to keep Santana.
I understand that the Yankees must keep Santana away from Boston, but at what cost?
