and? ...WHY DOES IT SEEM LIKE THE YANKEES ARE GOING TO OVERBID ON SANTANA!

With the Red Sox and the Yankees again doing battle, but this time during the hot stove upcoming week, why is it that all we hear is that the Yankees are going to have to include Phillip Hughes in any deal for Santana. The Red Sox have publicly stated that they will not include Ellsbury and Bucholz. The Mets have recently stated that Jose Reyes will not be included in any deal.



Why isn't Hughes listed as an untouchable along with Joba? If the Red Sox are offering Coco Crisp, Jon Lester, Masterson, and another prospect and the Mets are offering Lastings Milledge (more like baggage), Mike Pelfry, and a Chris Gomez why are we even considering putting Hughes in this deal. I consider Hughes and Joba 1a and 1b. Hughes is a big kid who is still only 21 years old. He is still developing and you cannot discount his easy fluid motion that was bringing 95 mph heat in the minors. I do realize that he was throwing 91-91 mph on the big stage but this is a kid that was on the DL for most of the season and had to start it up all over again. He is still developing people and at worse he is a very good #2 starter for years to come.





What are the Red Sox offering? Lester is at best a number 3. Masterson has potential but not ace potential like Hughes. Coco Crisp, are you kidding me, the Red Sox want to give him away. What are the Mets offering? Milledge who has not endeared himself with his teamates. He is a headache! Pelfry is either not ready or just not that good as was evident when he was called up. Maybe one day he becomes a #2 starter at best. Chris Gomez has a big ceiling but he still yet to develop as a hitter. He has the tools but tools are just that for positional players. Why not make Hughes our untouchable? If he would have thrown that no hitter before he pulled his hamstring would that have made a difference? Bucholz throws a no hitter and the Red Sox declared him untouchable meanwhile he was ranked below Hughes in the minors as Hughes was ranked the 2 best prospect behind the Royals 3rd baseman Gordon.




The Yankees should stand tough and not let the twins bait them into trading the farm away. It is widely known that the Twins make good deals for themselves going back to Ryan, there last GM. I say offering Kennedy who may one day be a very good #2 starter at best and a #3 at worse. Also throw in Melky whom the Twins have high regard for as he was once compared to Kirby Puckett with his skill set. Lastly thrown in an Alan Horne whom was ranked the best double A pitcher for 2007. He has electric stuff.





Do not give them Tabata or Jackson. Do not give them Betances. Hold onto our future. The Red Sox certainly intend to and the Mets have no real weapons to dangle without adding Reyes to the trade. So why are we outbidding ourselves and letting Red Sox fans and Mets fans hope that we trade away the farm for one player so they won't have to worry about a potential dynasty again emerging. Can you imagine if Santana, a smallish lefty does break down after we trade all those chips, and then we watch the Twins with Morneau, Delvin Young, Maier, Melky, Austin Jackson, Tabata, and Hughes light it up in the central. We will be a team with aging overpayed stars with a bleak future if we give in to there demands and sell the farm. I hope Hank reads this!'

I wouldn't trade any of the
Big "3"! Like RiveraveBlues say save the big 3, Where one may falter the other can pick him up they're something about comming up with the same players and playing with them that makes the whole bunch better as a group and as an individual.
Look at Posada, Jeter ,Mariano and Pettite they all came up together.
Next year Johan becomes a free agent also Sabathia too and 15 other A-list pitchers. I wouldn't do it, I'd wait it out

I disagree with you! You have to give up a Tabata or a Jackson OF's for a guy like Santana however...
Not Hughes NOT Kennedy and DEF NOT Joba!

You rather give up Hughes than Tabata come on now or even Kennedy who might be the best out the bunch for the longest duration? Who latest longer Gooden , Darling or David Cone?


................And trade WHO than??? ...Joba the phenom or Phil the next spector or steady Ian , no way! If he wants to become a Yankee he'll wait til 08 as F.A. There is something to be said about comradary and "The Big Three" as they're refered to as of now of Kennedy, Hughes and Joba even though Joba is a bit of a lone wolf renegade (All came up together!)
Ask Jeter, Posada, Pettite and Mariano!


I'd only trade Cano with Cabrera and Clipard and a few others minor league B+ type pitchers and or Austin Jackson or Tabata with maybee Wang maybee and try to entice Minnesota by eating the majority of contract! ... If this isn't good enough than "F" them
