The deal is done!!!

Santana is now a Met everyone! ESPN from the associated press broke the story not too long ago right before the 7 pm deadline on their website. Nothing in the article said the breakdown of the deal, just that it was completed and Santana will now take a physical.

"NEW YORK -- The New York Mets have reached agreement on a contract extension with Johan Santana completing the trade for the pitcher with the Minnesota Twins from earlier in the week. Terms of the deal have not been announced.

The two sides were given a 5 p.m. Eastern deadline to complete a deal after the Mets engineered the trade that involved sending four prospects to the Twins. But more time was needed to to work out the details and baseball officials granted an extension.

Said the Mets in a statement Friday evening: "Negotiations have been completed and the player will take a physical."

Congrats Mets. Our star is officially here!!
