This must have been the scene in many AL/NL clubhouses and bars on 2/2/08 when the Mets officially acquired Johan Santana from the Twins. Since then Johan Santana has literally dominated the NL. Granted some of that success may be attributed to the fact that very few NL hitters have ever faced Johan. Tonight’s matchup is an opponent that Johan has not had to deal with for quite some time. We must remember had played with the Twins for 8 Years and has faced the Sawx a few times. The numbers break down like this:

In 9 starts against the Boston Red Sox, Johan is

 4-4 with a 3.40ERA, 1.24WHIP and a .250BAA

 I don’t like using team stats too much as they don’t really reflect the changes the teams have made over the years. So using the lineup information that grave provided to us earlier, I researched their individual accomplishments (or lack thereof ;p) against the awesomeness that is Johan Santana

 Ellsbury-Never Faced him

Pedrioa- 2/5 .400avg/ .400ops

Ortiz- 2/11 .182avg/.250ops/ 4K’s

Youkilis- 1-6 .167avg/.167ops

Drew- 0/2 2K’s

Bay- 2/5 .400avg/.500ops

Lowell- 1/10 .100avg/.182ops

Varitek- 8/18 .444avg/.500ops

Lugo- 4/22 .182avg/.217ops

 Based off this and pretty much every time Johan has the ball, we got a shot to win tonight boys and girls. Lets go Mets!!

Cant wait till he gets his for the NL

  1. Dirty, what do you think about the new format? Any suggestions. We are having a riviting debate on color. LOL.
    Also, do you want to go ahead and make the switch?

    1. lol yea i posted in the other one about it. I really like the replay format..the other one started to get confusing. Very well done sir!
      The switch to chatter?

  2. Thanks for the help I was able to get Joe R back from the grave and bury joer1 for good. Still liking the black for most texts. Color is great everywhere else imo. Whats Johan in Fenway though? I heard its awful! Not a big fan of these numbers either…each year is different and with a pitcher like Johan adjusments can easily be made
