The Johan Watch Day 99

So the Johan Saga has now entered it's 99th day of active rumors. Nothing that comes out at this point can can really be trusted but in the intertest of full disclosure the Twins are saying the Johna situation will be resolved within ten days. Buster Olney is reporting that John Lester is off the table and the Mets feel used.

I still believe firmly that Johan will eventually be in pinstripes. The Yankees have a abundance of pitching prospects and two good CF prospects(one of the Twins biggest holes) so a deal should doable. However, when things are drawn out this much I wonder if the pressure mounts on Sanatana kind of how it smothered Randy Johnson and set unreal expectations. People will expect Johan to be worth all of this attention and if he stuggles early it could be ugly.
