Santana has simply been a joy to watch. He throws first pitch strikes to everybody, attacks hitters and does it with swing-and-miss stuff. Makes the games fly right along.

I'm shocked to see an inconsistent pitcher find success after leaving the Angels, and lean heavily on his changeup while so doing.
