Santana to Mets

According to the USA Today, the Twins and Mets have agreed to a deal that will send four players to the Twins for two-time Cy-Young winner Johan Santana. According to the sources, the Twins will be getting Carlos Gomez, Phil Humber, Kevin Mulvey and Deolis Guerra.

I can't say much about this right now, because I want to make sure the players are right, and let it sink in, but I must say that I'm a little disappointed that the Twins wouldn't push for Martinez or go with the Sox offer. I would have been much happier with Church, Martinez and two of those pitchers than this deal.

Before the deal can be 100% finished, Santana and the Mets must agree to a contract. There will be a 48 hour timetable before the deal goes dead.

More to come...
