    Happy for Goose.

    Ok, my Santana thoughts. I would prefer not to give up any of our 3 young arms (Hughes, Chamberlain, Kennedy) especially since Santana has a no-trade clause and I really think he wants to pitch for NY in the long run. I just dont think he agrees to be traded to Boston or Mets (two most likely outside of Yanks) even if Twins come to him and say they accept one of those packages - I know he says he wants to make sure Twins get the best deal, but something tells me he really just wants to finish up as a TWIN and leave via FA to the Yanks.

    What I would love is to trade Damon, Moose, and Farnsworth to Twins for Santana right now. Heck I would pay 100% of their 2008 Salary to make it happen.

    Bottomline, I think he will stay with Twins for 2008 and be a FA next year and Yanks will acquire him then, by parting ways with Pettitte and Moose following this 2008 season this sets up a 2009 Rotation of Santana, Wang, Hughes, Kennedy and Chamberlain.

    I still think Matsui has a chance to end up in SF before this reg season begins, although I would prefer to move Damon.

    We also need better options at 1B, but that could be a 2009 move and we live with Giambi, Duncan, Betemit options at 1B for 2008.

    "To me, there are three things we all should do every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And Number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy.

    "If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special."

    That makes perfect sense if he doesn't want to win a World Series.
