Off Topic: New York Mets acquire P Johan Santana from Minnesota Twins

In other news, My New York Mets have acquired Two Time Cy Young Winner in Pitcher Johan Santana from the Minnesota Twins. The Mets sent over FOUR Prospects in OF Carlos Gomez, P Philip Humber, P Kevin Mulvey, and P Deolis Guerra. The trade is contingent upon the Mets signing Santana to a contract extension, they have a 72 Hour Window in which to sign Johan!

This trade was so shocking I couldn't help myself from posting this news on our Bucs Blog, surely there's another Mets-Bucs Fan among us? At any rate, I never publicly bemoaned General Manager Omar Minaya at either of my two favorite NYM's Blogs: MetsBlog.com or AmazinAvenue.com, but I was quietly beginning to question whether he (and the Wilpons) could truly deliver an Ace to the Mets Faithful. I thought Barry Zito from last off-season was the answer, maybe Omar had Johan in mind then and decided to save that 100+ Million Dollar Contract. Smart man.

Can lightning strike twice for Bucs-Mets Fans? Can General Manager Bruce Allen deliver the same caliber of trade via the NFL? One can only hope.

By the way, you just knew would have Johan Santana Mets Jerseys already!!! The man hasnt even Officially been acquired yet!!

Go Mets and Bucs!!
