We have heard the Santana buzz for over a week now but today is the first time Nathan has been in the rumor mill in a potental deal. Joe Nathan is a top notch closer and could help Boston as a setup man but he is not a necessity for them. He is also in the last year of his contract as is Santana so the Red Sox can't give up too much for them and be in a situation where they could walk at the end of the season. The price for Santana is high, but for Santana and Nathan together it would take at least 2 of the Red Sox young stars including Jacoby Ellsbury. I expect Boston to go after Santana hard but I would doubt that they have that much interest in Nathan if it makes them put Jacoby in the mix instead of Coco. The Mets and Yankees are both looking to land Santana so look for negotiations to continue for a while.
