This feels like the Schilling trade all over again. Then, it was the D'backs demanding BOTH Soriano and Nick Johnson from the Yanks, but from the Red Sox they accepted Casey Fossum (who had already been exposed as mediocre) and mid-level prospects. Two championships later the Sox are still laughing about that one.
Now for Part Deaux. The Twins want Hughes AND Melky AND Kennedy from the Yanks -- but apparently are willing to take Lester (inferior to Hughes/on par with Kennedy) and Coco frickin Crisp (not even a viable major leaguer in my opinion).
Hughes and Melky -- while I don't want to trade them -- are so far superior to Lester and Crisp that it boggles the mind why the Twins would even entertain the Sox offer.
Can't wait to face a rotation of Beckett, Santana, Schilling, Dice-K, and Buchholz.
