Best case scenario for the Mets is that Santana comes back strong and they are able to trade him to a contender for some young prospects.
Optimism is great. But you need to mix in some realism. The best parts of the 2012 Mets will be the development of existing young players and the acquisition of new ones.
And the Shake Shack lines should be a lot shorter.
Haha....that was honestly #2 or #3 on my list of things I thought about when contemplating going to games this year. I've never actually had Shake Shack at Citi Field because the line is simply too damn long (and Blue Smoke is delicious as well). Perhaps this will be the year I can get there. It simply doesn't make sense to wait 2.5 innings for a burger no matter how good it is....
