Quote:
The Pirates, Yankees, Twins, Rays, Orioles and Brewers are among the teams that have been linked to Santana this winter.

The 34-year-old left-hander spent the entire 2013 season recovering from reconstructive shoulder surgery and had a pedestrian 4.85 ERA in 117 innings with the Mets in 2012, but he was one of the best starting pitchers in Major League Baseball between 2002 and 2010 and he is expected to carry a clean bill of health into the 2014 campaign. Santana just wrapped up a massive six-year, $137.5 million pact with the Mets.

Low salary with incentives. He would be worth a chance.

Certainly. I think this would be a great chance to take.

Santana lost his fastball years ago. That didn't happen to Liriano.

Maybe a visit to Bartolo Colon's doctor would help.
