Mets Fans Rejoice

Johan Santana is now a Met. Now all the Mets need to do is show Johan the money, probably 6 or 7 years at $140 to $160 million.
What's great about this deal is that they did not give up Fernando Martinez who will probably be a starting outfielder in 2009 and could be called into duty this year when Alou gets hurt and when Ryan Church sucks.
Carlos Gomez is a good prospect, Mulvey and Humber are mid-level pitching prospects and Deolis Guerra is the jewel of this deal, but he's several years away.
Before we get too excited about this trade we must remember that this does not guarantee the Mets will win or even make it to the World Series, this year, or at any point during Santana's tenure with the team.
But right now the Mets have the best team in the National League, and they should have Santana, Maine and Perez winning 15 games a year for at least 5 more seasons.
This is a great day for the Mets, I can't wait to see how it plays out.

He's going to look great in orange and blue
