Big Deal Intact for Johan?
Talk has speculated around the league about a deal for Twin's ace Johan Santana by the Los Angeles Dodgers. The only problem on LA's part would be handing over both Matt Kemp and Clayton Krenshaw to Minnesota's side. Both Kemp and Krenshaw are two star studded youngsters and would be very cheap for another 3-4 years for the Dodgers.
Johan, on the other hand, is going to reach free agency in the '09 season and will most likely get upwards of $20M per year anywhere he goes. The Dodgers would sure look amazing with a healthy Jason Schmidt and Johan Santana leading off the rotation of Penny, Lowe, and Billingsley.
