Maybe he and Prior can go on a cruise together or something. Maybe a trip to Vegas? :D:

That's a shame. You always hate to see anybody, but particularly a catcher - hurt their knees, especially at such a young age.

The bigger problem for the Twins is if Santana's arm problems don't go away. He was having the same pains at the end of last season, if I recall correctly.

Wasn't there a really bad film with Cuba Gooding Jr. along those lines...? :D:

The Twins will rally around this and probably go undefeated until he comes back.

There are many bad Cuba Gooding films. Either knee being hurt is a problem for a catcher. Sandy Alomar has had many and continues to play.

Weren't knees Karko's early undoing?

That and the fact he couldn't hit.

And he broke every mirror in the clubhouse. Those get expensive to replace, you know.

Yeah...it was his knees. I thought it was his hip at first...but that was Konerko. But like everybody's said...that and being a .200 hitter if that.

I heard Twin announcer Dan Gladden on Mac Jurko and Harry talking about this as a concern as well. He said Santana was hurt at the end of the year and still had pain in the spring.

i don't remember any films where cuba gooding jr played a super hyped but injured #1 draft pick where he had to go on a cruise with jesus. but i don't get out much so i could be wrong.

i think he's going to need knee surgery, that's definitely more than 3 weeks
