I'm not complaining, though. I'm glad the Yankees were able to hold on to Melky and Phil Hughes, and I'm glad that they won't have to face Santana more than once or twice a year in interleague play.

So is anyone else a bit puzzled that Johan Santana ended up with the Mets? I'm not familiar with the Mets' farm system, so I can't really speak to the quality of the prospects they sent to the Twins but... they're just that. Prospects. Both the Yankees and Red Sox offered young players with proven MLB experience, and yet, the Twins went with the Mets.
