Burnett...Traded and Injured
Yu Darvish apparently looked good to Mike Napoli, who caught his first bullpen session. The Japanese star is set to pitch in an intersquad game on Friday and may pitch in the opening spring training game for the Rangers on Saturday.
Hearing these reports out of the New York Mets camp that Johan Santana is pitching well and could be ready for the season opener is starting to pique my interest in the aging Mets starter. If Johan manages to find his form, he could work his way into relevance with the Mets...who really do need their ace to come back to form. Santana at 50% couldn't be worse then anyone else on the Mets starting rotation.
