Johan Santana was reportedly angry at the way Sandy Alderson and the Mets have treated him this spring, but at least publicly they’re trying to turn the page.

A day after reporting on all of the “rancor,” between the parties, Andy Martino reports that Johan Santana just told reporters that everyone was “on the same page,” after which Jeff Wilpon made a point to go over to Santana and shake his hand. ┬áMartino says it’s less than there being any refutation of the rancor of the announcement of any good news as opposed to everyone simply appearing to want to get that noise behind them.

Eh, spring drama. All that matters is whether Santana can get guys out this year. And how quickly the Mets can write the $5 million+ check to buy out his option year come October.

    “And how quickly the Mets can write the $5 million+ check to buy out his option year come October.”

    Which works out to about $21 Million less then they will still owe Bobby Bonilla.

      you better worry about Holiday, his arm is about to fall off.

        That’s terrible, I had no idea. Never been a Cardinal fan, but Matt Holliday has always been a classy guy

    Too bad that option will be such an easy decision, you’d always like to see it be a little more difficult than this.

    I hope he can get healthy enough to pitch effectively, I’m always interested to discover a skilled older pitcher’s minimum effective velocity.
