They are still trying to hammer this thing out. I think that means there’s enough progress to keep going.
Word is Johan Santana came out asking for six years and $168 million, which doesn’t include a signing bonus or this year’s contract for $13.25 million. The Mets supposedly countered at $21 million a season and five years.
It’s being reported the Mets could give the sixth year if the Santana comes down to $22 million.
