A Last Ditch Effort and Olney Puts The ESP Into ESPN
WFAN is reporting that the Mets are trying to convince Billy Wagner to reconsider his stance on invoking his no-trade clause at this moment.
They must really be hooked on whatever the Red Sox were offering…
Either that or they just want to shed that $3.5 million dollars left on their obligation to Wagner.
My guess is that it’s the latter…
Jon Heyman of SI.com, also confirms that the Mets are making a last ditch effort to get Billy Wagner to accept a trade to the Red Sox.

ESPN‘s Buster Olney is reporting that Johan Santana will probably not need reconstructive surgery according to his sources. He writes that it is probably a minor problem like bone chips and that he’ll probably be ready to pitch on Opening Day.
Of course this is based on his psychic powers which enabled him and his sources to view and analyze the MRI scans even though Johan Santana isn’t scheduled for the MRI until later this afternoon. Isn’t technology wonderful?
This obsession with being the first to post something first at the expense of a factual report is getting ridiculous.
There’s about a dozen reports all over the internet that is similar to the ESPN report, all of which are based purely on speculations and uninformed opinions. None of them back up their suggestions with any medical data or expert opinion based on Johan Santana’s individual medical findings.
The real story is that Johan Santana has been pulled from his start, is scheduled for an MRI this afternoon, and that Santana himself and some of his teammates are resigned to the real possibility he will need surgery.
Isn’t that enough of a story for now?
Can’t we just wait until the medical results are in and the diagnosis and prognosis is released later today?
