If some team took Santana's contract off the Mets' hands, you could expect a similar return.
I think trading Johan for cash is the Coupons next big play. The have consistently removed anyone making money whenever they could, (except DW, who they could not afford to lose if they wanted to maintain the charade).
Another analogy is the Beltran trade, they ate some money and received the coverboy of this year's Baseball America magazine.

Maybe. But to the contrary, he was actually their most durable outfielder by far at the time he was traded.
Going into this season, no one is expecting anything from Johan. But if he does surprise like Beltran did in 2011, I wouldn't rule out the possibility of a blue chipper in return. I think it's a long shot but i would have said the same thing about Beltran heading into 2011.
So we'll leave it to my sig again.
