Johan Santana said he’s ready, and he certainly looked it tonight.
His change-up might be one of the best pitches in baseball and it has gotten better with each start.
Biggest development of the night was Duaner Sanchez. Not that he pitched a scoreless inning, but that he said the priority is to be around for the end of the season and not the beginning.
As long as Opening Day is on Sanchez’s mind, there could be the temptation to push it too hard and that can only lead to bad news.
