    Could the Santana to Boston deal REALLY happen???

    To be perfectly honest, I didn’t think there was a snowball’s chance in hell that the Sox would actually be able to get a deal done to get Johan Santana into a Red Sox uniform–unless they gave up Ellsbury, Buchholtz, and every other top prospect in the organization–but if all the reports are to be […]
