Metsblog: Santana Contract Close

According to Metsblog, the Mets and Johan Santana plan to work on ironing out a contract extension into Wednesday night, though a deal is not expected to be completed until Thursday.

Nothing new here, but the blog also believes the final detail to be worked out is whether the final year of the contract is guaranteed or a vested option. Santana will likely sign a deal of six years with an annual value above $20 million but below $25 million.

Phil Hughes, Melky Cabrera, Jeff Marquez and a host of other prospects can now exhale.

Now can we finally put this topic to rest?
