Hank has given the Twins until late today to accept the Yankees offer of Hughes, Melky, and another prospect or the Red Sox offer of Ellsbury, a pitching prospect (Masteron?), and Lowrie. If the Twins take the Yankees offer and that last prospect is something like Alberto Gonzalez then I won't be to annoyed but I`d rather the Red Sox give up their studs. Personally, I think the Twins will take Boston's offer since we`ve heard they inexplicably like Ellsbury more than Hughes. That`s fine though. For people hoping for closure on this, keep waiting. The winner still has to work out a contract with Santana.
