It’ll get done because it has to get done. But Peter Greenberg is reportedly seeking six years and $150 million for Johan Santana. That would be on top of the one year and $13.25 million he has for 2008.
Seven years and $163.25 million for a pitcher? Yikes. It probably won’t end up that high, but clearly the Mets are going to owe Santana at least $125 million. The Yankees (and Red Sox) passed for that reason as much as anything.
As you probably noticed, the look of the blog changed a little when they redesigned the overall LoHud.com site.
I had the tech guys (and thanks to Jeff Marx) bump up the size of the text today. So that should be set.
The blogroll also changed. In the interest of being fair to everybody, the fans blogs are now listed in alphabetical order. I can now add, delete or fix links myself, so if you know of any changes that need to be made, please let me know.
We’re ready for spring training. Next week will feature a guide to spring training in Tampa and a position-by-position breakdown of the players coming to camp. I’ll be in Tampa on Feb. 11.
