Nick Cafardo reports that the Sox are willing to meet Johan Santana’s contract demands and… after the New Year things are expected to get down to the nitty-gritty, when Minnesota will expect the Yankees and Red Sox to give their final "best offer." The Sox are still offering Coco Crisp, Jon Lester, Justin Masterson, and Jed Lowrie. If the Yankees don't include Ian Kennedy, the Red Sox will land him.

If the Sox do not get more than Santana (Anthony Swarzak or Jeff Manship would help), it would be a bad deal for the Olde Towne Team. Even though the trade would put the best players on the roster over the next few seasons (Santana over Lester, Ellsbury ovah Crisp, Pedroia is better than Lowrie), the Sox would be selling assets below market rates.

For this deal to work out as Cafardo describes, the Sox would need to generate additional revenue. They could do just that if the Sox win over more of CT from the MFY, but that would be a significant risk.
