When the Mets pulled the trigger on the Johan Santana deal, I was pumped.
Let’s take a look at the pieces they had to give up.
Mets Get: Johan Santana
Twins Get: Kevin Mulvey, Carlos Gomez, Deolis Guerrera, Phillip Humber
With the results posted, I still would have made the deal even if I knew their numbers ahead of time. Santana put up the equivalent of three solid seasons as the Mets’ ace, and it’s just a shame he couldn’t stay healthy.
If he did, we’d be talking about one of the Mets’ all-time greats.
