USA Today is reporting that the Mets and Twins have agreed to a deal that would send Johan Santana to the Mets in exchange for four prospects:
The deal is pending the Mets and Santana reaching agreement on a six- or seven-year contract extension and that Santana passes a physical; they have been granted a 48 to-72-hour window to do so. Santana has a no-trade clause that he will waive if agreement is reached on a contract extension.
The Mets paid a high price in prospects to land Santana, agreeing to send the Twins outfielder Carlos Gomez and pitchers Phil Humber, Deolis Guerra and Kevin Mulvey.
There’s one word to describe what I’m feeling right now: giddy. Regardless of whether Johan is worth the price paid, it does inject some much-needed excitement into a drab offseason.
Look for more coverage soon.
