I disagree, I think you've got it backwards. A young, ground ball pitcher with an elite K/9 like Joba has a lot of upside. The only real knock on him is whether or not he can stay healthy pitching 200 innings per year, but Santana is just as much (if not more) of an injury risk.
2008 has been the only great season in Santana's career. Hes been mediocre the majority of the time. And right now he doesn't look healthy -- his velocity is significantly down. IDK, I'm just not convinced.
