    Chances get better once Willie Randolph gets canned. Randolph is already turning Santana into a 6 inning pitcher.

    That's an amazing start for Webb.

    No way. Santana is a well known as a second half pitcher and his stuff only gets better and his changeup only gets tighter as the summer goes on. He's just had a lot of problems with not finishing hitters. (EX: He probably had about 30 foul balls against the DBacks, in the summer, he's striking guys out in those situations). And he's only not gone into at least the 7th inning twice. Pretty much he has pitched 7 innings in 5 of 7 starts.

    Santana has never been a real workhorse in terms of pitch count. It's not Willie's fault that in the 3 outings this year that Santana has thrown less than 7 innings he threw 116, 114, and 113 pitches in them. In fact, had he kept him in for more than that, then you should have a problem with Willie.

    Yeah, he's just taking another step in his development. I don't really think Haren is the "ace" people make him out to be but Webb is arguably a top 5 pitcher in all of baseball.

    Wow checking stats, Braden looper has 5 wins and a respectable ERA!

    Dave Duncan is truly amazing.

    Fortunately Haren only needs to be a #2.

    Who cares? As long as Santana pitches at a "cy young level" then I am happy.

    Volquez > Webb so far this year

    1.06 ERA, leads the NL in K's, 5-1 on a crap team.

    Yep 37-10 in 2nd half since 2004 and that includes last years 5-7 record.

    Outside of last season he's 32-3. I like his chances more than Phil Hughes being AL ROY. The pen has hurt Johan a couple of times already and the top NL hitters seem to be raking this year but Johan usually enters a zone once the weather warms up and as the stats shpow can run off 10 W's in a row.

    Yeah, but unfortunately for my fantasy team, I don't think he's going to keep that up with all his walks.

    Interesting. Hasn't he pitched his whole career indoors?
