Now that teams have taken some time off, Santana updates have become a daily occurrence. It must be that it's just an easy subject to write about. Although, given how much the subject has been milked to death, I'd be surprised if people didn't just skip over stories involving his name.
Today's Santana non-update comes from Joel Sherman of New York City. Come on down! Joel's update can be summed up by the following. "According to multiple executives spoken to yesterday, the Red Sox remain the strong favorite to obtain the star lefty if - and probably more likely, when - he is traded in the new year."
Very nice Joel, throw the word strong in front of favorites and it's almost as if this was news. When was the last time the Red Sox weren't favorites to land Santana? And just to make his article seem extra full of news, Sherman says that Santana's most likely going to be traded.
This shouldn't come as a surprise either. Unless you allowed yourself to be fooled by the article yesterday that is. Funny, if the Twins really did have the resources to resign Santana, you'd think they would attempted it before spending the last month of their time trying to trade him. Not to mention, the Twins have been on vacation for almost a week, and are waiting for the new year to discuss Santana again.
I'm not going to put another picture up of Santana. I'm tired of this story. Wake me up on January 1st.
