I hear his arm is worth its weight in gold.

What kind of stuff does he have? I heard on the radio that he was really bringing it.

Hopefully we can keep him in the pen as well as Saarloos. They both seem more effective there.

He hit 92 a couple times, which is harder than I thought he could throw.

Sounds like this guy is going to be extremely valuable to us this year

Santos has a fourseam/two seam, change up, splitter and curve/slider..

In relief seems he can keep control, in starting..not so much.

Feeling good, Billy Ray.

That's entirely possible although I think they are interchangeable.

So long as you remember to ask who has been putting their Kools out on your floor, you're ok.

"Another clutch outing by Santos"

Isn't that redundant? Santos = clutch.

I was sitting fairly close to the action today, I was impressed with what I saw from Santos in person. His fastball was lively (a good sign in this weather) and it had run on it. He came into a pressure spot today and performed. In both apperances he got the best of the Cubs two most accomplished big league bats...a well deserved W for Slic Vic!

as long as they dont send him to AAA to make way for Milton to start Sunday... I say if Burton gets roughed up or cant find the strike zone, offer Oakland a choice of players to trade for him and let him get straight in the minors..

Could Santos found his calling and become a very successful reliever? There are just some guys who can't pitch consistant enough as a starter but succeed in a limited one inning per outing. Look at what it did for a guy like Gagne. Maybe Santos can become one of the better relievers on this team if not the best.

I remember not too long ago a thread talking about how his ST ERA was overrated and that we should get rid of him at all costs. Funny how opinion changes after one series in the regular season. I really like Santos. I hope we keep him because he's so versatile, and quite effective to this point. He can do long or short relief, and also could start should a starter go down with an injury. Glad to see he's doing well.

He should never start. I think it was Marty who was speculating that he gets too amped up to be a starter. For an inning or two he is great but after that he has sucked all the energy out of himself with his intensity. It was one of the Reds announcers and I don't recall who. I just know it wasn't George or Nuxie. May have been Welsch also.

This might be the key. Horrid starter, dynamite reliever. Looked that way so far, including the spring.

I'm fine with leaving him as a reliever for the season. It'd be nice to have a couple guys that you can count on consistently this season.
