From today's Minneapolis Star-Tribune:These were Johan Santana's words Tuesday after the non-waiver trade deadline passed without another trade: "I'm not surprised. That's exactly how they are. That's why we're never going to go beyond where we've gone."
"It's not just about hope," Santana said. "In a realistic world, you have to really make it happen and go for it.
"You always talk about future, future. ... But if you only worry about the future, then I guess a lot of us won't be part of it," Santana said.
The two-time Cy Young Award winner wasn't smiling.
I'm sure Santana wouldn't come cheap, he's one of the very best, but the notorious cheapness of the Twins is about to bite them badly this coming offseason.
