It looks as if the Yankees are going back for Santana. He is going to cost two/three players and a hell of a lot of gigawatts.
Hank Steinbrenner told the New York Daily News that the Yankees and Twins have recently touched upon discussions of a potential Johan Santana trade.
"It's up to Minnesota what they want to do and I assume they're still thinking about trading him," Steinbrenner told the newspaper in Saturday's editions. "As far as what I'm going to do, I don't know. There's been a couple of brief calls. The door's not closed. I'm still thinking about it." Source
We've seen Jennifer and Brad, Ben and J-Lo, could A-Rod and Boras be next? We here at Matsuifan/Bronxfan have also discovered information that may even lead to a possible Boras adoption of a kid in Africa. Our source is about as credible as Clemen's statement about not using steriods.
Alex Rodriguez officially signed on with the Yankees on Thursday, putting the finishing touches on a 10-year, $275 million deal. But while reuniting with the Yankees, he may have ended a 16-year relationship with agent Scott Boras.

Could it be a coincidence that:
-Suzyn is close buddies with Clemens
-Gets very emotional
-Had an uncontrollable rage in the announcing booth
-Picked up a mini van over her head?
Mitchell doesn't think so either. That is why he is going to start his next focus on Suzy Steroid. Don't be surprised at the findings.
When questioned about Suzyn, John Sterling replied " You can't predict baseball if you tried" he later followed by saying "And the 1-2"
Check out the in depth comments by Howard Rubenstein regarding the list of Yankees named in the Steroid report.

An early leak has been received exclusively by us from the 'Roid report. Apparently - Wil "I Love the Long Ball" Nieves aka Wil "Look Ma I Got A Hit" Nieves - was on 'roids in the minors - hence his spectacular production in Single A ball. As he was by far and away my favorite yankee - this is a sad day in Yankee history.
And what is Sal Fasano doing there?
Although many people think Bruney should have stopped playing for they Yanks a long time ago, he keeps on going out there with terrible performances.
Some performers just don't know when to hang it up.
The Yankees haven't asked Hideki Matsui to waive his no-trade clause and accept a deal to San Francisco, but there were strong indications last night he wouldn't stand in the way of a deal if presented to him. (Source)
