Here’s the conference call with reporters to address the surgery that Johan Santana will have. Omar Minaya also gets into the Billy Wagner trade to the Red Sox, J.J. Putz‘ next rehab appearance being delayed, and Oliver Perez coming back to New York to have his knee examined.
As usual, Minaya stumbles and bumbles his way through the call. It’s bizarre that he doesn’t even remember that Santana had elbow problems during spring training that almost caused him to miss opening day. It’s also odd that Minaya hasn’t spoken to Santana yet about the injury and impending surgery.

90 losses is almost a lock. I can’t imagine this team winning more than 10 games with 36 left to play.
It’s going to be close to a 90 loss season for sure. You know the Mets won’t go .500 for the rest of the season. This one is going to be right up there with the good ‘ole days of the Art Howe era.
Well, fortunately for the Mets, Perez is now out for the season and Lance Broadway will start in his place. I expect great things from Lance.
