Mets Morning News: 2012 Payroll, Santana Update

Joel Sherman of the NY Post takes a look at how the signing of Jose Reyes will impact the Mets 2012 payroll.
And actually for the first time this week, a top Mets official said to me what none had been willing to before, either for the record or for background: That one serious discussion being had at the upper reaches of the franchise is whether it would be wise to cut back greatly next year and make 2012 a rebuilding season in which club officials do not go through the annual game of trying to convince fans, if everything breaks right, they can be a playoff team.
Johan Santana completed his rehab start on Saturday, throwing 30 pitches (21 of them for strikes) over two innings. In his two innings of work, he gave up one run on three hits, while striking out two and walking none. Manager Terry Collins is still hoping Santana can make a start for the Mets at least once before the season ends.
"All it would be is, it would ease a lot of minds, ours and his, that he’s healthy, instead of sitting all winter long and waiting to see what happens with his arm in spring training."
