As I just try to take it easy for a few hours before heading out to watch my fourth CYO Basketball game in three days and arranging my shovels and rock salt for what is supposed to be the mother of all snow storms headed toward NYC (Please letâ€™s hope the weather dopes keep their forecast losing streak intact because the last thing I want to do is shovel 8 plus inches of snow. The only way I would enjoy this storm though would be if Megan Glaros personally came to my home to deliver the forecast.) News out of St Lonesome today was Johan Santana throwing 35 pitches and not running off the mound in pain but saying he feels “pretty good” but the Mets are not taking any chances so he will put on a plane (hopefully soon to avoid the snow storm) to be evaluated by Mets top doc David Altcheck.
Old School Dan Werthen feels that Johan tried to get back faster than he should have because he had ideas of pitching for Team Venezuela in the WBC and if that is not enough to end this ridiculous tournament what else is? If there were no WBC Santana would have come to camp working on getting to opening day but instead he pushed himself to much in early training and now there is a good chance we wonâ€™t be ready for opening day. Yeah Bud your doing a heck of a job.
