Cool The Ultimate Baseball player



Holy Shit, this kid is good. He can hit 500 foot home runs and is fast as hell and nobodys ever heard of him. He plays catcher, and not many catchers can run. Jays need to sign him!


BTW: The home run derby was in Tampa, so he could probably hit it farther if he wasn't in a dome. Hes also only 16 :O

why do a cover on the 2nd best pitcher in baseball for the last few years, when you can do it on Santana, and dont argue it, it's a fact.

not really, check the stats, better in EVERYTHING, literally, except CGs but he is still close in that. ERA, Innings (he isnt injured as much either), Ks, Walks, Opponent AB, literally, everything, for the last w/e years you wanna say.... now you wanna argue he is on a big time team.... well, Minny wasnt that big time, but he did well there too.

You've got to consider the divisions that both pitchers pitch in. The Jays have more wins than the first place team in Minnesota's division, and the Jays are only in third. Doc pitches against stiffer competition in the toughest division in sports.

ill give doc credit, the al east is no joke obv, but santana flat out DOMINATES the entire league, pretty much yearly, he is like pedro in his very prime. I like Doc alot too, but in every important category you wanna name for a starting pitcher, Santana is ahead in, except complete games, but he still plays more innings because he has proven to be more durable aswell. Doc also suffers from lack of run support, but so did Santana for many years, they are both still all world pitchers, but i think based on the last 4 or 5 years, there is no question doc is 2nd.
