No room for Johan Santana in #Mets plans for 2014 http://t.co/dGCE1idQK7

Earlier this offseason, this would have been bad news. At this point, with the amount of pitching depth the Mets have stacked up, it's the truth, and I'm fine with it. He would have filled a back end of the rotation role at best, and is probably a likely candidate to go down with another injury. Any chance Johan had at landing a role with the team was gone when they signed Matsuzaka last week.
From a personal standpoint, this means I got to see his last home start with the Mets. He, of course, got torched by the Braves for a couple innings and rode off into the sunset.
