Today Johan Santana got his knee scoped for torn cartilage. Apparently, it was the result of normal wear and tear not an injury that occurred during the season. He knew that his knee was bothering him during the last month of the season but told team trainers that he didn’t want to know how bad it was. The word is that he told the Mets training staff that the only way he wasn’t finishing out the season was if he went to the hospital in an ambulance.
The Mets picked the right guy to give a monster contract to: a great player and no excuses.
