Is Christmas Coming Early ?

Somewhere in New England, Chieftain is crying into his pillow...which is sure to make the entire Win Column nation rejoice. Latest speculation on a Johan Santana deal has the Red Sox offerring a 5th player to get the deal done.....and his name is not Jacoby Ellsbury....which is all that really matters. Ellsbury is untouchable to me. He has the opportunity to be a game changer in many aspects of the game every single night he takes the field. Anyway, the latest package would send Crisp, Lester, Lowrie, Masterson, and 9th round draft pick/phenom Ryan Kalish for Johan Santana.

Sure the Red Sox are giving up quite a bit of talent in this deal....but you know what....I don't really give a sh*t. Adding Santana to the rotation for the next 6 years (a contract extension will be signed upon a trade anywhere) assures the Red Sox will absolutely dominate the American League right through the next decade. Beckett, Santana, Matsuzaka, Schilling, Buchholz.......I can't even imagine how many games this team could win.

Get the deal done Theo......all I want for Christmas is Johan Santana !!!!!!!!!!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHa!!!!!!!!!!! We might not be hearing from Chief in awhile. Funny we haven't heard from him over the past two days. I seem to remember last week when he couldn't shut up about Johan going to the Yankees.

Now, now, now, everyone just relax. Nobody wants this deal done more than me (especially if we can keep Ellsbury and Buchholz out of the mix, as today's news is reporting), but let's not jinx anything. As I said in the comments a few posts ago, I'll fucking die if we get this done. I just don't want to put it in the bank yet.

On a side note, Johan's extended family lives in my neighborhood. I'm cooking up some kosher "welcome to boston" burritos right now as an attempt to help Theo and company. Shalom, amigos!
