Representatives for Santana, Mets talk extension
NEW YORK -- Johan Santana's agent and the New York Mets went to work on a contract extension Wednesday, the biggest step remaining for the team to complete its blockbuster trade with Minnesota.
Mets officials met with agent Peter Greenberg in Manhattan, but neither side would divulge many details. The two-time Cy Young Award winner is likely seeking a deal worth more than $120 million over six or seven years. He and the Mets have until 5 p.m. EST Friday to reach an agreement.
