The reason to love winter meetings...

Because when you mix Baseball executives, beat writers, and agents - this kind of crap can sometimes come out of all the rumor noise:

Three way deal involving the A's, Mets, and Twins.
  • Mets send Jose Reyes, Kevin Mulvey to the A's and Hector Pellot to the Twins.
  • A's send Crosby and Dan Johnson to the Mets
  • Twins send Santana to the Mets
Yes, so the Twins get Haren and Pallot, A's get Reyes and Mulvey, and the Mets get Santana, Crosby and DJ.

This is from - which is a site full of great fun. He posts this from a reliable source of his, he says - which I actually doubt very little.

But if this trade goes down, in the form written above - I will get a tattoo on my neck that says "GULLIBLE".

But again, deals made in fantasy-land are what the winter meetings are all about. It would just be fun to track exactly how this one got this far. Lord knows it probably started with Billy Beane talking to Omar Minaya about how he wished Danny Haren would cut his hair... and within hours, we've got a barn burner!
