Santana and rookie Lance McCullers are pitching. I thought I recognized McCullers's name, and while it turns out his dad, "Lance," was a major leaguer, that's before my time watching baseball. I must have been thinking of author Carson McCullers.
New Lance is much worse against righties than lefties, which is odddddd. He was in the minors, too. Digits:
|Thrower||ERA||H/9||K/9||BB/9||HR/9||OPS v. L/R||BAbip||FIP||Drug Of Choice|
|McCullers||3.21||7.7||9.3||3.2||0.5||.573 /.796||.301||2.99||Family Pride|
|Santana||5.40||10.1||6.2||3.0||1.5||.887 /.753||.302||5.10||Clean Living|
Santana has gotten Jed Lowrie, Luis Valbuena, and Colby Rasmus in the past. Go-Go absolutely annihilates him.
The Minute Maid company's headquarters is in Sugar Land Town Square in the city of Sugar Land, Texas. This is entirely appropriate.
