Little known Facts about Johan that you could read somewhere else

Outside of Sidd Finch, I can't think of a better pitcher to be honored with a $250 fake Mets jersey.

Little known (by me) facts about Johan Santana.

1) He is the son of Jesus. "His father, Jesus, taught him the game and Santana spent his early years using Jesus' old glove, forcing him to throw right-handed."
2) He had his own "Jacket." After a shitty 2000 season as a starter (0-3, 9.82 ERA) and reliever (2-0, 5.34), in 2002,"he opened the season in Triple-A with Edmonton. There, pitching coach Bobby Cuellar worked with him on developing his changeup." Bobby Cuellar please pick up the blue and orange courtesy phone.
3) Small countries worship him. He has become a hero in his native Venezuela. People took to the streets after he won his Cy Young in 2004, and Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez had to assign security to protect his family.
4) He is an excellent driver. Ok I am assuming he is an excellent driver here.

    Oh yeah. He's from Venezuela. THAT country! I'm sure a nice place, but now you've got me an eensy bit concerned that our quest for greatness will be at the whim of the mood swings and actions of Hugo Chavez. OK, I'll stay positive!

    my favourite line in that place that was supposed to make me puke:

    "So I'm not going to dignify posts about what a heartless quitter Glavine is by actually responding to them."

    Sounds like he just did...

    Jaap--nice catch--we can read between the lines, Stark, wink wink nudge nudge say no more-- i'm sorry you had to read that. But i hope it was as painful for you as it was for me.
