Collins: Johan Santana Will Be Set For Opener

"It was Feb. 21 when Mets manager Terry Collins first said he expected Johan Santana to be healthy for Opening Day.

And while that may have seemed unrealistic, nothing Collins has seen in Santana's two starts this spring has made the manager change his mind.

When asked after Santana gave up two hits and an unearned run in 2 2/3 innings in a 4-2 rain-shortened loss to the Marlins yesterday if there were doubt the lefty would be ready for the season-opener next month, Collins said: "Not for me. I truly believe we're going to do this right and Johan Santana will be on this team Opening Day.""
