Johan Santana Out for season with shoulder surgery

For three seasons, Johan Santana has been with the Mets. Now he has three surgeries to match.

The Mets announced on Friday that Santana will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a tear of the anterior capsule of his left shoulder. His status for Opening Day 2011 is in doubt.

"The most important thing is to be ready," Santana said, "to be 100 percent whether it's April, whether it's May, July, October -- who knows? Time will tell how I will recover. I've just got to get back to being healthy."

Trevor Hoffman's Legacy

It took longer -- much longer -- than he would have liked, but Trevor Hoffman finally has his nice, round number.
Major League Baseball's all-time saves leader notched No. 600 on Tuesday night at Miller Park, working around a leadoff single to close out a 4-2 win over the Cardinals.
When Wisconsin's own Craig Counsell fielded a grounder and fired to Prince Fielder for the final out, Hoffman threw his hands in the air and was mobbed by teammates who understood well the magnitude of the milestone, especially considering how hard those final four saves proved to get.
With a crowd of more than 33,000 cheering like they did two years ago, when the Brewers punched their ticket to the postseason, the big banner over the left-field bullpen, the one that was stuck on 596 for nearly three months, finally read "600."

The Heat In The NL East

Phillies manager Charlie Manuel has been around baseball long enough to understand the importance of September.
"It's good where we are at," Manuel said. "We have, what, 26, 27 games left? That's good.
"But we still have to win quite a few of them. We have to win some of those games."
The Phillies have won four straight and just completed their best month of the season, with an 18-10 record in August. In that time, the Phillies (77-58) have taken a three-game lead over San Francisco in the National League Wild Card race and trail Atlanta by just one game in the NL East.
In the Phillies' favor is the experience that comes with three consecutive division titles, something Manuel knows is almost, but not quite as important, as just getting into the playoffs.
