Mets fans can now sit back and relax. Omar Minaya finally did the biggest deal in baseball history. Yes, Johan Santana is coming to the Mets and the team to beat will be, I believe, the Mets this coming baseball season.
Also, for pitchers, this is the biggest package given to a Major League pitcher. Here’s a look at the five richest packages given to pitchers.
- Johan Santana, Mets, 6 years at $137.5 million.
- Barry Zito, Giants, 7 years at $126 million.
- Mike Hampton, Rockies, 8 years at $121 million.
- Kevin Brown, Dodgers, 7 years at $105 million.
- Mike Mussina, Yankees, 6 years at $88.5 million.
Until then, see ya at the bank!
