As today’s spotlight shined on Cole Hamels, who was described by Rich Dubee in a way that Yoda might describe Anakin Skywalker, using words like ‘anger’ and ‘frustration,’ the press parade in Port St. Lucie hunted down their own problematic pitcher in Johan Santana, who will be pitching with a surgically repaired elbow this season. When asked Thursday who was the best pitcher in the division, Santana shrugged and said, "Santana." Naturally, this has been construed as an affront on Roy Halladay and the Phillies. You know, as a diehard Phillies fan, I’m willing to give them Santana and his 143 career ERA+ over Halladay’s 133, even with Santana’s elbow issues. But that’s about it. The Mets will be a non-factor, and considering some of the nifty little moves Washington made, I wonder if the Nationals can finish higher in the standings.
