04:40 AM ET 11.05 | There is doubt that Minnesota will move Johan Santana for two main reasons: 1) Taxpayers helped fund the Twins' stadium that opens in 2010, and it could be considered a breach of financial faith with the fans to lose Torii Hunter and Santana in the same offseason, and 2) with Francisco Liriano due back from Tommy John surgery there will be a feeling Minnesota can excel around starting pitching and, if the Twins don't contend, they still could consider moving Santana at the July 31 trade deadline.
