I dunno. What to say at this point? Why, just in the past few weeks, we've had a stunning amount of Sox/Sox-related news:

  • The Sox are helping the Twins to draw out the Johan Santana Trade Discussions
  • The Sox FO have all started diaries/journals about the Johan Santana Trade Discussions
  • Fox recently optioned a script (yes, crossing picket lines to do so) for the Johan Santana Trade Discussions™ (as a union writer, kind of but not really, I do not sanction this particular piece of news).
