Santana has been utterly dominant in the last 2 months. Blue chipper to the fullest.
A cy young is in his future, and after some of the older gentleman fade away from the fantasy scopes (i.e RJ, Schilling, KB, and Moose) he will take his place with Prior, Wood and other's as the game's elite.
Heck, he's probably already there.
Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

I'm a huge Santana booster, and have been all along. But I'm also of the opinion that Sheets is right there as well.
BTW...just what constitutes a poor game in the minds of some of you? Sheets settled down and had an OK line tonight. Gave up the four ER, but had a 1.00 WHIP and 8 K's in 7 Ip. Hardly a disaster. And last time out, his pitching line was worse than it should have been as the Cardinals (who are hitting the crap out of everyone) benefitted from some miserable defense, mostly by Jenkins (no errors were charged, but Jenkins had two misplays that were costly).
