I would prefer Quintana over Santiago as a starter since Santiago has experience in the pen and Quintana seems more suited as a starter.
Back in 1979 we had 4 lefty starters that we all thought would lead us to the WS for years. Steve Trout, Ken Kravec, Tex Wortham and Ross Baumgarten all were .500 or better for a team that was 14 games under .500.
That was the high watermark and by 1982 they were either traded or out of Baseball. Lets hope the current crop does better.
