The Jays have owned left-handed pitching this year, as their lineup is predominantly right-handed and just take a look at the heart: Rios .367 vs LHP, Wells .326 vs LHP, Glaus .333 vs LHP, Thomas .307 vs LHP.

Actually, this thread points out my two favorite things about Johan Santana (and why, seriously, he warrants consideration as the No. 1 pick overall):

1) His second-half stats are insane.
That was a rough outing, but it only raises eyebrows because Johan is usually a no-hit threat every single start after the break.

2) Johan is never injured.
In the years I have owned him, I've never even seen a single report of a tired this or a sore that or a tweaked the other. Not so much as a hangnail. And this would be because he is a fastball-changeup pitcher with pinpoint control. Not much stress on the arm.

sorry guys it's my fault. every pitcher on my team this season has pitched like this...nothing new.


Me too! Just dealt Beltran and Blanton to get him ... oh well, at least he can't go 0-4, right?

This is why it is usually helpful to READ THE THREAD, not just the headline.

Anyone dropping J. Santana should never play fantasy baseball again!

What a stupid move!
