A Throw-in on the Deal?

I had assumed that the Mets had traded Carlos Gomez, Deolis Guerra, Phillip Humber and Kevin Mulvey to the Twins in return for Johan Santana. Imagine my surprise when Baseball America came out with their Top 100 Prospects list and I saw this:

I'm going to assume this is a typo and not BA knowing something we don't. Ranked number 20 on the list, Fernando is the only Met prospect to crack the Top 100. Among players that actually were traded to Minnesota, Guerra checks in at number 35 and Carlos Gomez shows up at 52.

In a more somber note, Dave Mills forwarded this e-mail to me from Kathy Foronjy and Joe Coburn, the producers of the terrific Mathematically Alive documentary about Mets fans:

I'm writing to let the Mets community know that a friend really needs our prayers and support. You all probably know Matt Hoey because he's been first in line for tickets at Shea for the last seven years. If you don't know him personally you've probably seen or heard about the fan who wears the orange & blue Dr. Seuss hat. Matt was in a accident this weekend and was hurt pretty badly. Joe & I are in shock and still trying to figure out what we can do to help.

Matt is one of the nicest, most genuine human beings we've ever met and he's most passionate about the Mets. We think the best thing to do right now is to send Matt support and love from his largest group of friends. We've created an email for those who want to offer sentiments to Matt & his family. GetWellMatt@mathematicallyalive.com. His wife Tracey will pass the messages along to Matt.

Please take a minute out of your day to send a supportive message to our friend Matt Hoey.

I will try to be back later today with another post if time permits.

About Mike: I was the original writer on this web site, actually its only writer for the first 15 months of existence. Although I am grateful for the excellent contributions of my fellow writers here, I have no plans of stepping back into strictly an editorial role. I started this thing in the first place because I love to write and I love the Mets, and blogging here keeps me somewhat sane. If you haven't had enough already, more bio info can be found here.
