A great comeback after a miserable game against the Nationals. Maine was excellent and where did Omir Santos come from? He seemingly came from nowhere and has really been impressive so far defensively and now offensively. With Brian Schneider coming back soon, Santos deserves another look later in season. I know there were rumors of trading Ramon Castro in the off season and with both Robinson Cancel and Santos maybe the Mets could explore the options again.
For this CotG post, I have a rack pack of 2008 Upper Deck Series 2. I got this pack mainly because from the back I could see a Chin- Lung Hu card I didn’t have. There was only two Mets card Johan Santana and Endy Chavez. So the choice is easy. Even though Endy is known for “the catch”, Johan Santana is the anchor of the rotation and the ace. Plus, Santana is still with the team while Chavez is in the Mariners.
