Pending a physical and contract extension, Johan Santana, the greatest pitcher in baseball, is about to join the New York Metropolitans. The deal, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, is for Carlos Gomez, Deolis Guerra, Phil Humber, and Kevin Mulvey.
Here's a look at the Mets '08 rotation:
1. Johan Santana
2. John Maine
3. Pedro Martinez
4. Oliver Perez
5. Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez
That is by far the best NL rotation right now (and possibly the best in the Majors).
This just in as well, the Mets are the 2008 NL Eastern Division Champions!
Great deal Omar! You've earned all our respect again. Now get a deal done for 6 years 140MM with a 20MM mutual option for a seventh year.
