That's because I was under the impression that the Twins already had traded Johan Santana to Boston months earlier as the player to be named in the Kevin Garnett trade. Or was Santana the player who completed the Randy Moss deal? No, wait. That was Torii Hunter, right? Oh, well. It doesn't really matter now, does it? The point is, the Twins had to trade Santana to someone because, well, those are the rules in Minnesota..............................
