…seriously, this has to be a done deal, i would think…they’re not all together, in the same room, eating dinner, only to rip up the deal and go home, you know what i’m saying

Update6:44 pm

The Mets have issued a statement saying negotiations are complete and Santana is scheduled to take a physical.

…from what i can gather, the physical will be tomorrow

Update6:46 pm

i have reason to believe the deal is for a guaranteed six years, and $137.5 million…as expected, he’ll stay under contract on his current deal, but paid roughly $7 million on top of that…i can’t confirm that with people connected to the team, though…

…santana’s agents also rep Jose Reyes, who has been invited to the press conference, which will almost certainly be next week…
