I haven't done Santana yet but I'll post them when I do.
**Ok, went ahead and looked at Santana. Assuming Santana is 100% come spring training, which he is suppose to be, I like him for a touch more power and a few more runs scored because of the better OBP skills. Otherwise I think the BA should be similar and the RBIs will probably be similar. Too be honest I think across the board they'll be very similar...the only thing that really seperates the two is OBP/BB rate but if your league doesn't count that then it's kind of a moot point. But with Santana being more of a flyball hitter and probably a little more of a LD guy I'd expect a few more HR out of him. Santana may also see a few less ABs as they may not want to pound him behind the plate too much since he's coming off the knee surgery. Anyway, definately keep an eye on that rehab progress...
Obviously plenty early right now....rehab could go bad, teams could add or lose key players, etc But here's some early numbers to fight over!
