Today's Fun Fact

When Johan Santana was at his very best – say, 2004 – he allowed a contact rate around 66 percent.

↵

In Santana’s first start this season, against the Braves, he generated 13 whiffs on 33 swings.

↵

In Santana’s second start, Wednesday against the Nationals, he generated 14 whiffs on 37 swings.

↵

That’s 61-percent contact, two games in. We won’t get ahead of ourselves, but the Mets must be encouraged.
