Well, it finally happened. Johan Santana is (tentatively) a New York Met. I can’t speak for everyone but all of a sudden the grass is greener and the sky is bluer than it was a couple of days ago. All that stands in the way is a contract extension and all of the players passing their physicals, which shouldn’t be a problem. Neither the Mets nor Twins would try to bargain with players they knew [...]
The day after this brilliant trade by Omar was announced, we want to know what everyone is saying. It’s understandable that some people are leery until the deal is sealed, but I, for one, am a very proud Mets fan! Here are some quotes from around the league: Braves GM Frank Wren - "Johan Santana is one of the best pitchers in the game so clearly you hope that a pitcher like that doesn’t end up in your division [...]
After thousands of rumors, posts, blogs and articles, the Mets have trumped the Yankees and Red Sox won the Johan Santana sweepstakes! Baseball’s best pitcher is now a New York Met… It was long time in developing, with most analysts and sportscasters giving the Mets little chance of getting Santana from the Twins. We have had to endure countless articles that said the Mets farm system was inadequate and their prospects were sub par. However, [...]
Bob Nightengale, of USA Today, reports the Minnesota Twins have agreed to send two-time Cy Young winner Johan Santana to the Mets for four prospects. The prospects include Carlos Gomez, Phil Humber, Deolis Guerra, and Kevin Mulvey. The biggest part of this deal has to be Fernando Martinez. Not only do we get Santana, we keep Martinez. ..it’s over! and we prevail! Fernando Martinez was a big chip if we added him in the deal. [...]
Billy Wagner continues to make light of the Mets lackluster off season with some strongly worded comments about where the mets rank in the their division. In his opinion not only do the the Phillies rank ahead of the Mets, but the Atlanta Braves as well. The comments were made during SNY’s broadcast of Mets Hot Stove with Kevin Burkhardt, and was first reported by Matt Cerrone at MetsBlog. Billy Wagner got himself into same hot [...]
It looks like the Baltimore Orioles have traded right handed, starting pitcher Erik Bedard to the Seattle Mariners according to several sources including the Seattle Times and the Baltimore Sun. Apparently the Orioles will get back super-prospect Adam Jones who has been called back from Venezuela to undergo a physical. When reached for comment today, Adam Jones said… "I received a call from Seattle saying that there is no more playing for me and I can’t do [...]
We are not alone Mets fans… I think the Mets’ beat writers are getting as anxious about a Johan Santana trade then we are. Some of them have even changed their positions on the matter. A couple have gone from reporting any rumors on the matter, to actually urging Omar Minaya to pull the trigger already. Yikes! Bob Klapisch – There are many fine individual components here – Beltran, David Wright, Jose Reyes, Billy Wagner [...]
Well, happy almost end of the week to everybody! Once again, an uneventful week in the world of major league baseball. I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m getting pretty sick of hearing about who the front runner for Johan Santana is. I think SI.com has an article at least 3 times a week about it. I just want to tell the Twins to make up their minds already. They have to do something in [...]
The Mets are now looked at as the clear favorites in the Johan Santana sweepstakes by more than just a few credible sources. Yesterday alone Jon Heyman of SI.com and the Boston Globe hinted as much. There is absolutely no escaping these rumors. Every morning I make my usual treks to my favorite Mets sites, starting with Matt’s MetsBlog and then I move onto ESPN Insider, AOL Fanhouse, and finally Fox Sports. Lately it’s always Santana, Santana, [...]
