My New Favorite Santana

Let me be clear: I really liked Rafael Santana. He was a solid defender, a miserable hitter, and one of those random guys that everyone seems to remember from the 1986 Mets. Notwithstanding that affection, I have a new favorite Santana, and redemption, thy name is Johan.

There are still meaningful hurdles in place before this trade is official (i.e., the Mets have to sign Santana to a new contract), but I have to believe the Mets would not have let this become public if they didn't think there was a better-than-decent chance that they could sign the long-term deal.

Omar, all is forgiven.

More to come . . .
