Johan fools no one
Johan Santana struck out only one guy today. (And said guy was the other pitcher, Tim Hudson.) Curious, I looked up the last time Johan had a game with one K (or less), and it was on June 19, 2007 against, ironically, the Mets. (Fuck you, Alanis -- I know how to use the word properly.) Despite only fanning one that day, Johan still got the complete game shutout. Before that, you have to go all the way back to April 6, 2004 versus the Indians to find another one. That was Johan's first start of the season and he lasted only four innings, while again striking out one. Does this stuff interest anyone but me?
