Rain On The Parade

There was rain on the Giants victory parade but it didn’t damper the spirit of the fans in attendance. On Monday I told you that I was going to review the rundown on the other $100 million pitchers in anticipation of Johan Santana’s arrival in New York.

Well… I changed my mind. Although Santana didn’t say much today at his press conference. You can hear what he had to say to Mike and the Mad Dog here. On the left side of the page you can listen to the interview.

I won’t rain on Santana’s parade today by dissecting the disasters that precede him in the $100 million pitching club. Let’s just celebrate the day. There will be plenty of time to worry about his contract becoming an albatross before spring training starts.

In case you missed it you can watch the press conference here.

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.
