12:15 p.m., from Peter Gammons
Don't expect to see a Twins-Red Sox or Twins-Yankees whopper. The sense is now that Minnesota will hold onto Johan Santana.

I've been obsessively checking and re-checking every rumor blog and news wire since early Monday morning. Never in my life have I paid any attention whatsovever to these kinds of offseason wranglings, but this is Mi Corazón we're talking about now.

Every time I start to think that maybe, maybe this could happen and I'll still, someday, be close to okay, then I think of next year's American Leaguge Championship series, and the possibility of the Twins maybe going into Game 1 to face Johan Santana starting for the Red Sox, and then I just want to die.

My condolences.

At least he didn't go to the other NY team???

as j said, at least he didn't go to the Yankees :) and now you'll get to see him bat all the time (remember his extra base hits last year?)

Thanks, both of you.

It is something of a comfort knowing that he's going to the National League.

I'm having a little bit of an existential crisis right now, but I appreciate your condolences.
