F*CK. As reported by MLB.com, the Twins ace was traded to the Mutts for four prospects: Phil Humber, Carlos Gomez, Deolis Guerra, and Kevin Mulvey. Humber, a pitcher, is ranked as the number 7 prospect for the Mets, and has a chance to make the Twins rotation out of Spring Training. Gomez, the number three prospect, is expected to take over in center for the departed Torii Hunter. Guerra is a pitcher and ranked number 2, only behind Binghamton left fielder Fernando Martinez. He spent the year at high A St. Lucie, and won’t debut for a while. The last player, Kevin Mulvey, is also a pitcher, and ranked fourth. He was at AA and AAA in 2007, but he most likely won’t make the Twins until at least July.

There are only two good points to this transaction: Now the NL All-Stars stand a slight chance, and the Mets mortgaged their future for a pitcher who will garner a $billion contract for life. Let’s hope he only stays for ’08 than bolts back to the AL!
