Yankees, Twins discussing Santana trade

From the Associated Press:

Yankees senior vice president Hank Steinbrenner said Monday that discussions are ongoing but it was too early to tell whether they would lead to a deal. He did not detail how far talks had progressed.

"I don't want to get into that at this point, as far as what they want, what we're willing to give and all that," he said. "It's preliminary right now." (ESPN.com)

As I mentioned on Saturday, I'd be willing to part with Phil Hughes and Melky Cabrera. I saw reports today that the Twins are interested in prospect Austin Jackson as well. That is a little steep if you ask me, but Johan Santana is the best pitcher in baseball.

Is it really worth it? Only time will tell.

Hughes and Cabrera > Ellsbury and Buckholz / Lester???

I think Cabrera is more proven than anyone else on the list...Ellsbury could be a flash in the pan, and that would be hilarious if he was.

Ellsbury has a lot to prove and so does Hughes and Buchholz. Right now it's more like. The most experienced guys on the list are Melky and maybe Lester (that's pushing it too far).

Hughes and Cabrera = Ellsbury and Buchholz or Lester
