In this week’s Mets Weekly Report video, Kerel Cooper of On The Black and I talk about some of the latest news from the Mets this week. Primarily, Johan Santana pitched 2 inning for the St. Lucie Mets and he may even make a start in the Majors this season. We talk about whether we want to see Santana pitching with the Mets this season or if the Mets should hold him back with an eye toward 2012.

We also talk about the deal that fell through last week for David Einhorn to buy a minority stake in the Mets. It seemed like a done deal in June when the Mets introduced Einhorn to the media as the next part-owner of the team. But delays in consummating the deal ensued and it ended up falling apart last week. We talk about why the deal fell apart and what that means to the Mets financially going forward.

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.
