Santana Deal Close

With the Yankees unwilling to throw in Ian Kennedy, the Twins have reportedly decided to go with the Red Sox. Late last night, according to a several reports, the Twins and Red Sox exchanged medical reports on pitchers Johan Santana and Jon Lester.

The Twins have obviously decided to go with Lester over Ellsbury, and the deal would be Jon Lester, Coco Crisp, Jed Lowrie, and Justin Masterson.

I don't have a lot of time to post much more, but I personally expect a deal today. Maybe the Yankees will see what is happening, and give in with the Kennedy demands?

Also, I'm hoping the deal is Ellsbury, Lester, and Lowrie. There are rumors the Twins went to the Sox to see how they could get him added. Stay tuned...
