He Remind Me of a West Side Story

Ladies and gentlemen, the Santana sweepstakes is over. Congrats are due to Omar for realizing that going to war with the starting five of Maine, Pedro, Duque, Perez, and Pelfrey was not going to cut it if the Mets wanted to make their fans forget about their choke job last September. This trade ended up working out brilliantly for the Yanks, the BoSox, and the Mets. The Yanks and BoSox are thrilled that a) the other team isn't going to have the most dominant lefty we've seen in baseball for the longest time and b) they won't have to pay him. Many Mets fans will jump the gun now and say they are the favorite to win the NL Pennant. I tend to disagree now, though. I think the road in the National League is going through Phoenix. The D-Backs, who are the defending NL West Champs and NL Runner-up, have added Danny Haren, giving them a 1-2 punch the league hasn't seen since Johnson/Schilling in 2001. And we all know how that worked out.

Super Bowl blogging to come!
