Joe Posnanski’s blog is always great reading. Yesterday, he had a doozy on where the Royals stand in the chase for Santana. I won’t spoil it, but here’s the rub:
I decided to write my own, “Hey, now the Royals are in the Santana chase,” story. I got to Royals general manager Dayton Moore and asked, “Hey, why can’t you guys go get Johan Santana?”
He responded, basically, by suggesting that was not exactly one of the world’s great questions.
But you will notice … that’s not a denial. Am I right or am I right?
So here’s my story:KANSAS CITY — Kansas City Royals general manager Dayton Moore on Wednesday did not deny that his team is very close to completing a trade for Minnesota Twins ace Johan Santana.
And we go from there.
It’s definitely worth a read, especially if it’s 6 pm Eastern on a Friday and you’re still stuck at the office.
