I said every horrible thing imaginable about this guy last season. If I go to hell when I die and ask God why, he will replay a clip of me "discussing" Santiago as he blew save after save last season. My hate went way past MacDougle or Billy Koch territory.
But I will give credit where credit is due. 8 innings 1 hit. 0.41 whip. The guy seems to have worked hard and could develop into something nice. Not many teams have that guy that can come in for 2-3 innings after a Peavy game and play well.
A Peavy game is defined by me as a 5.0 innings pitched, 3 earned runs, 10 strikeouts but 110 pitches thrown.
Compared to a Buerhle game which is a 9.0 innings, 3 earned runs, 2 strikeouts, 0 zero walk 90 pitches thrown game.
