Selling high applies to a guy who is performing way above his norm. While Santana may not stay this hot, he is one of the premier fantasy pitchers. K Rates like his aren't readily available. Leave him be, unless someone offers you something ridiculous like Pujols.
I agree, and I've been a huge fan for a couple of years now (3rd year I've had him on my fantasy squads).
But if you could boost another area (like Tejada at SS) thinking that Santana couldn't possibly pitch this well given his upcoming schedule, would that be something to consider?
Santana is just filthy (absolutely one of my favorite pithers the last 3 years), could be that he just needed to relax and get his stuff together. Only thing that bothers me is the HR's that he gives up. The teams coming up might make him pay for that.
santana is a bonafied stud and we are seeing an ace develop before our eyes BUT against those teams, wins will be few.
yes he will strike out a lot of people, yes he will pitch well too, but he wont win as many games as he should. He will be the AL's Oliver Perez (i'm just talking stat-wise). so you would be out of your mind to NOT trade him for somebody like tejada.
I don't expect Johan to fade away. He has been sensational, racking up Ks all the time. Everyone knew he had the potential and a promising future and he is delivering the production that he had inside of him. He should keep this up, and I think he'll do it for years to come. I consider him one of the best pitchers in the league right now and only worth trading for a true stud.
