    Another blockbuster? (Santana-Haren-Reyes!?)

    From mlbtraderumors:

    Santana/Reyes/Haren Blockbuster In The Works?

    Just got an incredible rumor from a trusted New York sportswriter. Stay with me, because this one's crazy. But rest assured that if the source wasn't good, I wouldn't post it.

    Minnesota has initiated talks for a three-way blockbuster with the Twins and A's. Here's how it would go down:

    Mets send Jose Reyes, Kevin Mulvey, and Hector Pellot to A's
    A's send Bobby Crosby and Dan Johnson to Mets
    A's send Dan Haren to Twins
    Twins send Johan Santana to Mets

    Mets get Johan Santana, Bobby Crosby and Dan Johnson
    A's get Jose Reyes and Kevin Mulvey
    Twins get Dan Haren and Hector Pellot

    The source says Haren is exactly the type of player the Twins want for Santana, a cheap frontline starter. It's known the Mets would hate to deal Reyes but they would get some value beyond Santana. Billy Beane is happy because he gets Reyes for one more year than he had Haren plus longtime favorite Mulvey.

    I was JUST getting ready to post this here.

    This winter definitely hasn't been short on entertainment thus far.

    Minaya said earlier in the week that he wouldn't part with Reyes. It will be interesting to see if he's changed his mind.

    If I'm the Mets, who have a ton of $$$, I sit tight and find pitchers elsewhere, whether it be by trading other players than Reyes, or getting them in FA next year. The Reyes for Crosby swap at SS is a massive downgrade, and they have no place for Dan Johnson, really.

    This has been an entertaining winter meetings. I am refreshing every few minutes and finding a half dozen new posts or replies every time, a juicy rumor every quarter hour or so, and tidbits in blogs and boards all over the 'net. Its a good thing they solved the burn in problems on monitors or I'd have a big RedsZone header burned into my screen by now.

    That trade actually makes sense for all parties; thus, there is no possible way it could happen.

    I'd like this to happen just to make the offseason interesting. More blockbusters says I. Who cares about the internal logic of the deals?

    I hope the Reds at least offered Coats and Cantu for Santana.

    I think if it meant him getting Santana he would.

    This one does make sense. I don't know if the Mets will part with Reyes, but I think this deal would make them better. It would probably depend on Crosby's physical.

    I could see the Mets really wanting to make this deal, they have always been second class citizens to the Yankees and with that new ballpark going in to place they would want to make a splash. The Mets have little starting pitching too.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
