Santana Saga Ends – Johan To The Mets
..it’s over! and we prevail! Fernando Martinez was a big chip if we added him in the deal. Lucky for us, we get to keep him.
With Santana on the Mets, the starting rotation is projected to look like this:
- Johan Santana
- Pedro Martinez
- John Maine
- Oliver Perez
- Orlando Hernandez
..the Mets now have 72-hours to reach a contract agreement with Johan. This is a must-do for the Mets, in my opinion, only because a tease to the fans won’t go over well. I’m fine with a 6-year deal, just make it reasonable Omar.
5:15 PM Update by Joe D. – The Mets or Twins have yet to confirm this officially. Sources from both teams are confirming the deal is done and the Mets are working with a 72-hour window to sign Santana. Johan Santana is looking for a six year deal sources tell us. We will continue to monitor the situation throughout the day and night.
5:35 PM Update by Joe D. – Both SI.com and USA Today are reporting that they have confirmed that the Mets have acquired Johan Santana and the only thing that stands in the way is the Mets reluctance to go beyond a five year contract.
