If this isnít a sign that weíre on the verge of the Winter Meetings, Iím not sure what is.
Hereís one trade proposal courtesy of the St. Paul Pioneer Pressí Bob Sansevere, who suggests that Twins GM Terry Ryan get Theo Epstein on the phone stat and offer the following trade proposal: Johan Santana, Carlos Silva and Joe Nathan for Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, Jonathan Papelbon, Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz.
Is that all? Itís a wonder the deal hasnít been made yet. Iím not sure what Silva might think of the deal, seeing as heís a free agent and all, but whatever. Take a shot.
Fire Joe Morgan (Google, naughty words prevent the link) has a field day with the idea, of course, as does Keith Law. Weíre assuming Sansevere meant all this tongue in cheek, but just in case, might we offer to throw in Mo Vaughn, Danny Heep, and Dom DiMaggio as well? See if they bite.
