More Talks Coming

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – According to Peter Gammons, who is well connected in Boston’s front office, the Red Sox and Twins plan an afternoon meeting to continue their discussions. So there could be some news later today.

If Boston remains adamant about not including both Lester and Ellsbury in the same deal, I just heard speculation that Bill Smith might try adding a prospect of his own to the deal, in hopes of making the trade more palatable. If that’s the case, this could be another all-nighter.

Give up the goods already. Santana to the Sox in exchange for 4 Red Sox players. The Angels don't have any spare "bats" to include and certainly can't match the pitchers that Boston has included in the deal. Jacoby Ellsbury is not the second coming of Ichiro and even if he was, would that really matter for a power starved lineup?!?!
