How about Drew vs any Twins SS in the system right now?
That's a completely irrelevant question is a vacuum, mike. You know that most people would say he's currently
(emphasis here) superior, although Souhan and others are not convinced the Twins view Santana as very far off from being ready.
We don't know what the Twins think about Drew. We don't know what the Twins think of Drew compared to their other current or potential near future
(emphasis here) options. You can assume they are balking at signing him because they don't want to spend any more money, and you would probably be wrong. You might also assume they haven't signed him because they don't think the potential benefit is worth the current
price, and you would probably be right. If I thought signing Drew was a good idea, I'd just have to accept the likelihood that the Twins, for reasons they are not going to share with me, disagree, and I'm not going to find fault with that given how little I know and how much they know.
You don't fit these categories, mike, but some of our friends actually believe the only reason he hasn't been signed is because the Twins are running some kind of spreadsheet that helps them never ever put wins and losses ahead of profits. And some actually believe they have some insight that would suggest the Twins are making a poor judgment call about Drew, since it doesn't match theirs
