LADY AT THE BAT: Mr Met, You've Changed!

Mr Met, You've Changed!

Well, the trade appears to have been made. The Mets have pulled the trigger and made a deal for Johan Santana. If you're a Red Sox fan you have to be glad, because now you don't have to worry about your team having to give Josh Beckett at least the same money they would have given Santana. If you're a Yankee fan you have to be ecstatic, because the Red Sox don't have him.

Yes, Johan Santana is Mr Met now, because he gives that team the 1A starter it's lacking, assuming that both parties can agree on a long-term deal (and that Santana passes his physical). Will the Mets give him the deal? If they do, it'll be a big departure for them. They're a team that usually keeps their purse strings pretty tight.

We shall see.
