Call it Sherwood Forest-style baseball. The poor Minnesota Twins are going to rob from the rich — the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox.

The New York Daily News reported the Twins were not overly impressed when the Yankees added Phil Hughes to a potential trade package for Johan Santana. The Twins let it be known they will be happy to go into next season with Santana in their starting rotation if they don't get what they want.

Minnesota wants another top-tier prospect from the Yankees, either pitcher Alan Horne or outfielder Austin Jackson, to go along with Hughes and center fielder Melky Cabrera. The Daily News reported the Twins are insisting the Red Sox add either pitcher Clay Buchholz or center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury to a package that features lefthander Jon Lester.
