Um, don’t look now but Johan Santana just tossed 2 scoreless innings in his first post-op action.
Yeah, it’s “just” a spring training game, and “just” the 2nd game of March but I don’t think there can be ANY “just’s” when Johan is returning from shoulder surgery.
If he can somehow regain Santana form, and thats still a BIG “if” … thats a HUGE shot of adrenaline in the collective Met heart.
Torres continues his spring surge with 2 hits, including a triple, 3 rbi and a run scored. WOW! Can the regular season please hurry up and get here so we can unleash him on the NL.
Maybe its because we haven’t had a new star in 2 years that I’m merely a fan starving for a hero - but I am VERY HIGH on Torres’ 2012.
The guy has a lot of ingredients of a player about to have a big year.
