New York Mets High Priced Talent, Really High Priced

Dan Rosenheck of the Times did a great article analyzing the contract of Johan Santana.

I usually look at Baseball-Reference for statistically similar players, and they list Roy Oswalt and Tim Hudson among others as the most statistically similar to Santana.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
