Terrible news about Johan, though. He pitched two of the best games I've witnessed in my career as a Mets fan. Game 161 of the 2008 season to keep us alive (pitching on short rest, went over his pitch limit, shutout the Marlins), and of course his no-hitter last year against the Cards.

If there is one silver lining in this though, it's that the Mets have quite a few young pitching prospects (Wheeler, Syndergaard, Montero, Fulmer) that definitely make the future bright for this team.

Johan has very bad luck since he became a Met. Its real sad. That signing has become a train wreck. Its a shame since if healthy he would top 5 pitcher.

Since we're all discussing the Mets.... LOL Wheeler...

http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/20...medium=twitter

Quote:
This is something you don’t hear every day: two Mets prospects — Zack Wheeler and Aderlin Rodriguez — got into a kerfuffle during a couple of intrasquad games in Port St. Luice recently.

Adam Rubin reports that Wheeler hot dogged his way around the bases after hitting a home run off Wheeler in one game and then, in a subsequent game, Wheeler drilled Rodriguez in the hand, which Rodriguez had feared was broken. Rodriguez then threatened Wheeler. They have since been called on the carpet and things are allegedly OK now.

Santana either had a terrible rehab doctor, or he's just really unlucky. Dude needs to hang it up before he fucks up his shoulder for the rest of his life.



-edit-

And no, I'm not saying this cause I'm a White Sox fan that was used to seeing Santana give a big F U to the Sox every time he pitched against them. If he honestly messes up that shoulder 1 more time I can see him having to be forced to retire.

Well, that's that:

http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/91...illion-sources

Quote:
Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers have reached agreement on a new contract that could exceed $202 million, sources told ESPN's Buster Olney.

Verlander's deal, which would make him the highest-paid pitcher in the game, is for seven years and worth $180 million, sources said. A vesting option for an eighth year could push the deal to $202 million.

"I love this city & the fans -- couldn't be more excited to spend my career here! We're going to bring a World Series to Detroit!!!" Verlander tweeted.

Absolutely, sidewinder. These contracts are sheer insanity and I want nothing of it.

OK, so its an 8-year extension for $159 million. Over the 9 years of the contract, that’s an AAV of $18.5 million. Very team friendly.

That's a big commitment for such an injury riddled position
