From the Dept. of "Duh": Santana wins second Cy Young
As expected, it wasn't even close. If winning the major-league Triple Crown doesn't automatically qualify you as the unanimous Cy Young winner, nothing does. It shoulda been three in a row, but hey, who's complaining.
In other Twins news:
For the second time in his career, Terry Ryan is baseball's Executive of the Year.
Gardenhire is runner-up to the Tigers' Jim Leyland for Manager of the Year.
And in actual news, Ryan is reportedly interested in 2002 NL RoY Jason Jennings of the Colorado Rockies. Jennings is a solid middle-road righty scheduled for free-agency in 2008. His $5.5 million option was picked up by Colorado this year, and in return for the 28-year-old, they'll want a young starter of the Baker/Perkins mold. The Twins need an innings-eater behind Santana, and with luck they'll only need him for one season, so this makes sense on the surface. What do you think?
