Yankees ready to include Hughes in Santana deal

ESPNews is reporting this like it's really close to being a done deal, given that Santana and the Yankees can work out an extension. It would be Hughes, Melky Cabrera and a third player for Santana.

It would be a monster pickup for the Yankees. I can't really say anything more than that. The Yankees are the World Series contenders of old if they add Johan Santana.

He's dominant, he's in his prime, and he's going to be a No. 1 for a long time. Chien-Ming Wang is a good pitcher, but they need that shutdown ace. Santana is definitely that guy.

I never wanted to hate you, Johan.
