Vaya con Dios, Johan

The news is reporting that pitcher, Johan Santana of the Twins will be going to the Mets in exchange for 4 players. I'm actually ok with it. I think Santana only has another good year or so left in him and he's costing this club a fortune. He can be inconsistent and this last year he was very much so. He's also expressed his displeasure with this club a lot in the last year. Someone like that probably needs to go.

Hopefully, the 4 players we are getting will turn out o.k. It's looking skimpy for the coming season.

I think the consensus is that the Mets made out like bandits on this deal. In an online poll at ESPN, with over 40,000 votes cast, 83% of the respondents think the Mets stole Santana from the Twins.

I agree that it was time to trade him, but not sure why they picked this deal over the ones offered previously be the Yanks and Red Sox...

Does that mean Johan won't be doing the decor at the Basilica any longer either? (I never knew he played in that show with the Olsen Twins.) Who are the Mets?
