    The changeup is the most devastating, because it comes out of his hand looking just like his fastball. When it arrives 18 MPH slower than the heater, hitters swing and miss by embarrassing margins. Batters call his changeup a "yo-yo pitch" while Santana calls it his "butterfly pitch". Santana has also learned to throw his slider with different breaks at different speeds.

    I hope we get a dominant performance tonight. He's been the best pitcher after the all star break for a few years now...strong 2nd half.

    Phillies fans seemed pissed about the prospects they gave up.

    He's not that great. Hopefully the A's get Carrasco.

    4.96 ERA, I think.

    He's a solid pitcher. He'll be their #3/#4, not a bad pickup IMO.

    not good, if Myers comes back solid there rotation will be pretty good.

    He's just an innings eater, not much more.

    Johan K's Bruce on 3 pitches.

    Looks like we have a pitching duel on our hands.
