Breathe it in, and breathe it out,
And pass it on — it’s almost out.
We’re so creative and so much more.
We’re high above but on the floor.
It’s not a habit, it’s cool — I feel alive.
If you don’t have it, you’re on the other side.
You may have thought the 1996 alt-rock classic by K’s Choice was a sublte anti-drug anthem. Clearly, this conventional take is wrong. The song is actually discussing an addiction that is much more insidious: That of Johan Santana trade rumors.
Gordon Edes says the Twins have ramped up negotiations, and that Red Sox officials wouldn’t be surprised to see a Santana deal done (though not necessarily with Boston) by the end of the week. Buster Olney takes it one step further: A deal could be done "as early as today," and the Twins have asked for teams’ last and best offers.
There’s also this bit:
Two sources involved in the discussions say the Red Sox have indicated they won’t trade Lester, and another highly placed source says Lester remains on the table. A fourth says the Red Sox are willing to deal Lester only in a package with little window dressing — in other words, Lester and Coco Crisp and little else.
It’s over now, I’m cold, alone.
I’m just a person on my own.
Nothing means a thing to me,
Oh, nothing means a thing to me.
