Hot Tranny Action (The Johan Edition)


Twins trade Johan Santana to the Mets for Carlos Gomez, Deolis Guerra, Kevin Mulvey, and Phil Humber.-Nothing will re-energize a disenfranchised fan base more than acquiring the best pitcher in the world. The Mets have once again established themselves as the team to beat in the National League. I have been one of Omar Minaya's most vocal and least relevant critics for a while, but he deserves major props for getting this deal done. I honestly didn't think the Mets had a prayer of putting together enough of a package to score Johan. Omar kept his hat in the ring on the off chance the Santana market would collapse. His persistence paid off. This could be Minaya's crowning achievement.

On the other hand, the Twins GM and legendary Islanders' goaltender Bill Smith surrendered the most desired property in the sport, without acquiring a single can't-miss prospect. Despite the fact that scouts fantasize about their tools like Judge Reinhold fantasized about Phoebe Cates, Carlos Gomez and Deolis Guerra have never dominated at any level in the minor leagues. Kevin Mulvey and Phil Humber are the types of prospects who can only dream of becoming the next generation Steve Trachsel; a halfway decent pitcher for decade or so.
Both the Yanks and Sox had made better offers for Santana two months ago. But Bill Smith is the guy who blows off the 8 at the bar, because he's hoping to pick up a supermodel. The supermodel wants no part of him, the 8 takes off, and he goes home with complete pig.
Mookie if you don't post about this tonight, just kill yourself.
