And I think Santiago would be ahead of Quintana. Well, at leas for me. Much better power stuff.

If only Kenny could work some Magic to get Danks off the books. Maybe eat 25% of that contract.
I don't buy Santiago as a solid SP candidate as long as he walks too many people and that has been a problem all year. Quintana, too, gets in trouble with the walks, but that has mostly been a recent development from him. I think through August he was basically walking 1 batter per 9 IP. Neither has overpowering stuff, you can't live in this league as a soft tosser without command. I think Quintana's, when he's not being burned out, is better. But we shall see. Hopefully between the two of them, one can stick.

5.5 BB/9 IP for Santiago. 2.8 for Quintana. That's a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUGE difference.
