    Wow, only player with higher $$$ per year is A-rod. That is unbelievable for a pitcher. I wonder what that will end up per start, or per win?

    Re: Mets Strike a Deal with Santana

    22.9 million a year, Santana is good for a maximum of 20 wins , so its at least one million dollars per win. Ratio will continue to get higher later on in the contract. Seven years is a long time for a pitcher.

    thats what I was thinking too. seven years, a lot can happen in seven years. They will be a solid club though.

    Re: Mets Strike a Deal with Santana

    32 starts/year with an average of no more than 100 pitches per start, that works out to a smooth $7100 per pitch.

    I seriously doubt he is going to be worth that in year 6 of this deal, but I have been wrong before.

    I hope this deal works out as well for the Twins as the deal where they got Liriano and others for AJ Perzinski (sp)

    Re: Mets Strike a Deal with Santana

    On a per year basis it will probably only be behind ARod. My question is not millions per win or pitch but how many million he will get paid per shoulder or elbow injury.

    Re: Mets Strike a Deal with Santana

    I would guess the probability of him completing the contract without a major injury or fall off is less than 50%.

    A few recent examples:
    Chris Carpenter - 0 wins last year
    Barry Zito - $126M huge flop last year
    Jason Schmidt - $17M per year - 1 win last year
    Randy Johnson - $16M per year - 4 wins last year
    Pedro - 3 wins last year
    Mike Hampton - $105M contract several years ago, done virtually nothing
    Wood and Prior

    Re: Mets Strike a Deal with Santana

    Santana will enjoy pitching to the NL nine spots but there is no way he is worth the $600+ thousand he gets for every game he is in. When will baseball learn they are pricing themselves out the market. If Boston, NY, and NY would have said 'you are not worth that kind of insane money', he would have been very happy to take the $80mm for 4 years the Twins offered.

    The key with Santana is that he never gets a huge pitch count. Each one of those other pitchers were going out and throwing 100-130 everygame. Santana is more effiecent and is ussually about 85-105. Not saying he won't get hurt, but relating him to those pitchers really has nothing to do with it.

    Will the Mets be able to use him like the Twins did? He has had the luxury of having both reliable setup guys and Nathan on the back end. I'm not sure that the Mets can duplicate that situation.

    Yes, its not that Santana couldn't have pitched more its just that the Twins are pretty strict with pitch counts, once a pitcher reaches 100 they are out(exception is if its end of the 8th with a shutout going). Santana has no injury history so perhaps he'll luck out and stay healthy but it seems as if a lot of pitchers end up with some sort of injury.
