Is anyone else as tired of this story (or non-story) as I am?

I'm pretty sure I've written about this before, but I think it bears repeating. The entire Johan Santana story is about the feeling of entitlement held by fans of the Yankees, Mets, and Red Sox; the belief that any good player they want should be handed over to them posthaste, for whatever pittance that is offered.

The decision of whether to trade Santana or to hold onto him belongs to the Minnesota Twins, not to ESPN or anyone else in the East Coast media. The Twins are under no obligation to deliver Santana to the Red Sox or Yankees just to enable the wet dreams of Yankee fan in the media. Ungrateful Twins! Why won't they just accept Melky Cabrera and be done with it?

Be prepared to hear variations on this theme all the way up to the trading deadline.
