It’s beginning to feel a little like the Omar Minaya Mets again with the stories and denials about Johan Santana‘s stalled rehab. There was a report this weekend that attributed an unspecified person in the Mets organization saying the Mets may shut Santana down. Then Santana himself denied it. This coming less than a week after Carlos Beltran was diagnosed with tendinitis in his non-surgical knee. I know it’s not Sandy Alderson’s fault but it’s getting very hard te keep believing things will be different this year.
