It is hard betting against Johan Santana, but looking at the guy who he is facing makes it a lot easier. Halladay is right there behind him as far as the best starter in the AL. Halladay is 4-0 career against the Twins, with a 2.17 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, and .204 BAA. Last year he pitched a 2 hit shutout against them. Santana is most vulnerable in the beginning of the season, as April and May are his worst months while he is relatively lights out past the All-Star Break. Toronto is the most hyped team in the AL, and with good reason. Ryan is an elite closer, Glaus adds major power to the lineup, Overbay is a consistently solid hitter, and Molina is a good hitting catcher as well as a good backstop and handles pitchers well. Vernon Wells is poised to have a great season as well with a good supporting cast. The Twins aren't nearly the offensive threat the Jays are. Hunter, Mauer, and an inconsistent Morneau lead a decent but non-overpowering lineup. This is the most excited Toronto has been about baseball in years, with Doc on the hill, look for the Jays to give the fans something to cheer about.
