They know they can get the best pitcher in baseball, and if they have him and Beckett, they will be amazing for years. The Twins aren't stupid either. They like the Sox offer, but they want to make sure they can get full value for him. No way they let him walk for nothing at the end of the season. There is open dialogue between both teams because the Twins are saying, yeah we'll take your offer, but we want to make sure there is nothing out there. The Sox don't need to get more pitching, so they aren't setting a deadline. It would not surprise to me see a deal done around christmas.
