Santana looses back-to-back home starts for the first time in two years
After having been at yesterday's game, feeling pretty sorrowful at Santana's back-to-back loses and that the Twins have lost the past four out of five games, I thought I'd make my last blog entry about the Twins dissapointing season.
The Pioneer Press posted a story about on their website today titled, "Santana has April blahs." According to their story, "Johan Santana looks nothing like an ace, nothing like an all-star, barely even like someone who is going to win a game this season."
The Star Tribune also posted a story on their website today about Santana's second loss of the season. Their story stated that every five days, opponents fret over how to beat the Cy Young winner. But this season teams like Cleveland and Tampa Bay have been getting lukcy.
But the Pioneer Press says fans shouldn't worry. It was just one year ago that Santana began the season with mediocre pitching, and he ended up winning another Cy Young award. The story also quoted Santan's cather, Joe Mauer, as saying, "Every year, he just gets better and better throughout the year. I think you'll see it, too."
