But take heart. There is something positive that we can be thankful for.
The lengthy and so-far fruitless trade talks for Santana are making life harder for Kyle Lohse.
That makes me smile.
Here's the quote from Kyle, talking about his process of landing a contract somewhere as a free agent:
“We’re closing in, but nothing is real imminent right now. We’re getting close, but it’s a long process because of the way the market has been this year, I think it’s been drawn out a little more with all the Santana trade talk, and Bedard, and all these guys, it’s slowed down the process a little bit.”More quotes from the XM radio interview are here.
So, now I kind of want the talks to drag out even longer. As long as possible. I like the idea of Lohse twisting in the wind, waiting to be some team's fourth or fifth choice.
