Source: Yankees Out of Santana Race

from Network Member Tommy Marcus at The Mets Bullpen

According to a source at, the Yankees chances have gone down a lot of getting Johan Santana.

Johan Santana is not expected to be the Yankees’ big Christmas present, a source with knowledge of the situation said Friday.

“I don’t see it happening with us,” the source said. “We pulled out in Nashville, and we haven’t put an offer back on the table.”

Well, this is great for the Mets- it just marks that the Mets and Red Sox are getting a much better chance in getting Johan, which is great. Maybe the reason for the ticket prices going up 20% is because Wilpon thinks that the Mets chances of getting Johan Santana is increasing- which I think Mets fans would now agree with the raise.

I still think that we should give away 4 or 5 prospects for Johan, cause I really think that he is worth that.
