Fresh off throwing a no pitcher on Friday night, the Mets pitcher was to read the Top 10 List on tonight’s Late Show with David Letterman on CBS. But when the top 10 list came up on the show, Dave told band leader Paul Schaefer he was going to read the list instead.

“Originally he was going to do this list,” said Letterman. “But he had to catch a plane” for the Mets road game in Washington DC. “That’s very big of you,” said Schaefer.

Newsday Mets writer Neil Best reported on his Twitter account, “David Letterman himself will read the Top 10 list Johan Santana was supposed to read tonight before cancelling due to travel logistics.”

Santana told the Wall Street Journal, “”It’s something I really would like to do, but we’re on a schedule here.”
