We were scrolling through Dan Shanoff's "a.m. Quickie" (that name give us the heeby jeebies) today when we came across this quote from Twins ace Johan Santana re: Minnesota's lack of a trade-deadline move:

"I'm not surprised. That's exactly how they are. That's why we're never going to go beyond where we've gone."

"It's not just about hope. In a realistic world, you have to really make it happen and go for it."

"You always talk about future, future. ... But if you only worry about the future, then I guess a lot of us won't be part of it."

"Why waste time when you're talking about something that's always going to be like that? It's never going to be beyond this point. It doesn't make any sense for me to be here, you know?"

Looked for a Twins blog for some fan reaction, but didn't really find any; this does not look so good for Minnesota, though. The best pitcher since Pedro Martinez was in his prime is essentially a) asking for a trade; or b) leaving via free agency after this season. If we weren't so lazy, we might actually look up which one it is.
