Breaking News: Johan Santana to Start Opening Day
Some good news out of Port St. Lucie for Mets fans: Jerry Manuel has announced that former Cy Young Award Winner Johan Santana will get the ball on Opening Day — April 5th against the Florida Marlins at Citi Field in Flushing, NY.
I know, it’s April Fools, and you may think this is all a joke … but believe me when I tell you this is absolutely, completely, 100% the truth. If you don’t believe it, you can go to Mets.com and read it for yourself; it’s also been reported on ESPN.
That’s right, no punch line. It’s official.
Hopefully this news will give you something to look forward to, and cheer about in four days’ time.
