Do you remember Tsuyoshi Shinjo?
Remeber that guy......played for the Mets.....well Shinjo is back in Japan now, where he plays for the Nippon Ham Fighters and spends his time “out of uniform” doing underwear ads for GUNZE’s Body Wild line up of underwear for men.
What The FUCK????
(Oh yes and Nate remember when I told you this guy did gay porn?? I made a miskate that was Kazuhito Tadano.)

Johan Santana is now officially a Met. The extension is for six years and $137.5 million. He was given a $7 million bonus to his $13.25 million deal for this year. So in total it is seven years and $150.75 million, or an annual payment of $21.5 million. I've said it before and I'll say it again, that is a hell of a lot of money for a pitcher. Yeah, they're important, but they play once every five days. Santana will be thirty-six at the end of the deal, and those last few years could make the Mets regret this trade. Especially considering the players it would take to get him, I'm glad the Yankees didn't make this deal. It simply wasn't worth it to them. As Pete Abraham pointed out, with the luxury tax, they would be paying him $28 million per year. It makes a lot more sense for the Mets and I think this is a good deal for them. So congratulations Mets, your are now the fourth best team in baseball.

In other news: The (Devil) Rays locked up James Shields with a very creative contract. Take note Yankees. Also, the Mets are now the frontrunners for Johan Santana, pretty much because they're still interested.

Anyway, I found this article by Vince Gennaro, a baseball economist. He analyzes the possible Johan Santana trades and it is very interesting, you should definitely check it out. With regards to the possible Santana to Yankees deal, he says it does not make financial sense for the Yanks. He describes the prospects necessary to complete the deal as a tariff, because Santana would require a large sum of money to be signed long-term. I agree with this 100%. He doesn't say it specifically, but implies that it would make sense to sign him as a free agent after this year.
He later adds that it makes even less sense for the Red Sox, but a case could be made for a Mets trade.
