So the Mets win the Johan Santana sweepstakes.

The Twins took four prospects from New York, outfielder Carlos Gomez and pitchers Philip Humber, Kevin Mulvey and Deolis Guerra. It seems like a pretty reasonable deal for the Mets. You have to think that after their epic collapse in September, blowing a 7 game lead with 17 to play and with a new ballpark opening in 2009, Omar Minaya and the Mets were much more desperate to do something than the Sox or Yankees. Now the Mets just need to come up with the $100 million+ they'll need to sign Santana.

From a Red Sox perspective, this isn't a bad outcome. Santana is not with the Yankees and is out of the league. The Sox get to keep their prospects and still have a very good starting rotation next season.
