The Rangers Almost Had Johan Santana has a feature you may have missed.  I meant to blog about this last month after I read it.   I forgot.

Jon Heyman reports the Rangers were ready to roll the dice on a deal for pitcher Johan Santana. 

The Mets made the winning trade with the Twins, but Jon Daniels was trying to make him a Texas Ranger:

The Rangers kept their intentions and progress remarkably quiet this winter, but sources indicate that they were actually the most aggressive early pursuer of Santana, who they viewed him as a rotation-transforming pitcher. Some are suggesting now that they believe the Rangers would have been willing to pay Santana as much or more than the $137.5 million, six-year contract — or technically, $124 million, five-year extension — he got from the Mets.

Bang it here for the rest of the story.
