The Next Mike Hampton

Johan Santana must have missed the memo when he transferred from the AL to the NL that stated the fact that even though he will now TECHNICALLY have a spot in the order, the norm is that he never actually hit the ball. That’s the only explanation for this former Cy Young, future silver slugger, new found career as a batter (he went 2 for 2 today with a walk). Not to mention his 7 inning two run performance to improve to a 3 and 2 record with a 3.12 ERA. Showing exactly what the Mets, or any team, will need down the stretch this year, a stopper who after a losing steak can step up and single-handedly carry the Metropolitans to victory. An all around good game today, with the exception of David Wright who was 0 for 4 but when you win 7 to 2 who really cares?
