Read some interesting stats about Santana and the effect of moving to the NL could do to his numbers.
Since 2001, of all the pitchers that
- made the move from the AL to NL
- started at least 10 games in the seasons before and after the move
- ranked in the MLB's top 25 in ERA at least once
there were 23 such pitchers thah had their collective ERA drop from 4.71 to 3.83 and an increase in strikeouts of 8%. The general consensus is obviously that with the NL not having a DH in the lineup they inflate the pitchers' records somewhat.
Santana's career interleague numbers as a starter to date look like this:
Games W/L ERA WHIP
v AL Teams 133 68-31 3.02 1.02
v NL Teams 16 10-3 2.16 0.83
Realistically he could achieve a 20+ win, 2.50 ERA and 250K season this season.
Santana to have most wins - $8.00
Santana to be ERA champion - $8.00
Santana to have most strikeouts - $6.00
