Santana Will Lead Us
Santana is the piece that was missing last year. Remember the last game of the 2007 season and how Tom Glavine vomitted all over the 1st inning and couldn't even get 3 outs? Now think about what would have happened if Santana was pitching that last, key game? Yeah, the outcome would have been drastically different.
The Mets have themselves the marquee, lockdown pitcher they've desperately needed. Now I'm sure Santana will lose a game or two between now and the end of the season, but I'm confident he'll deliver just when the team needs him most.
