Johan Santana to the mets? Pull the trigger Omar.

Well every offseason there's been something to keep our minds on. Although now i definitly think everybody just wants it to end.

Im talking about the tons of rumors that is the Johan Santana deal.

The sox were close to getting him, the Yankees were taking their offer off the table then putting it back (twice). And now i hear the Mets have the best offer.

As a mets fan im very happy to hear that. But everyone knows that to get the best pitcher in baseball you have to give up some talent which the mets will have to do if they want him to pitch in Shea.

Normally i object against trading 5 prospects for one player. But the fact is Johan Santana is the best pitcher in baseball, is still 28, and a move to the NL almost guarantees him at least 20 wins. So this is an exception.

I am not one to be the GM of any team but for now i say "Make it happen Omar"
