Long: Ervin Santana: The forgotten free agent

It seems reasonable that Santana’s new team can expect him to continue his ground ball tendencies, assuming he keep using his sinker. This is especially important against right-handed batters, as it gives him just enough of a different tool to compliment his fastball and slider. One could even argue that his performance has room for improvement if he mixed in an even greater percentage of sinkers. If Santana mixed in more sinkers, and maybe even matched his fastball usage, the results could be fantastic for whichever team ends up signing the oft-ignored pitcher.

I will now take it upon myself to promote the upside of Ervin Santana non-stop, until such time as the laundry changes.

Also, Doug Fister sucks.

Not to beat a dead horse, but Mark Bowman is reporting Brandon Beachy going under the TJ knife again as well.

But Stephen Strasburg lives!
