Johan Santana throws complete game shut out, finds himself the new owner of San Diego Padres

Someone is always feels left out when a couple holds hands.
Someone is always feels left out when a couple holds hands.

Johan Santana PWNED the Padres today in his first complete game shut since 2010. They never stood a chance. Santana took out a loan in the early innings, paid the principle and a low interest rate steadily throughout and at the end found himself to be the new owner of the San Diego Padres. Eat your heart out Thomas Tull.

The lesson here is that opposing teams can have their way with Clayton Richard early in the game. It takes him about 3 innings to get into a groove and by then it's too late more times than not. Former Padre Scott Hairston touched up his former teammate with a homer and the Mets finished the first with 4 runs. I was brushing my teeth at the time while listening to Ted and Scan on the MLB App and when Hairston made contact I let toothpaste and drool run out of my mouth, stunned. All my excitement for morning baseball went down the drain with my saliva.

I'm listening to Ted Medenhall on XX Sports Radio right now and they are saying Santana only threw 96 pitches. Unbelievably 74 were thrown for strikes and only 22 balls.

In other news Cameron Maybin's was removed from the game. He's been battling a wrist injury, here's hoping he doesn't end up on the DL with the rest of the team.

Another day game tomorrow. Hooray!
