Not sure why I would be.
Just don't think your assessment that he can be as good as Santana has any validity.

Don Mattingly's wife arrested
EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- The estranged wife of Los Angeles Dodgers coach Don Mattingly was arrested and charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct after police say she refused to leave his property in Indiana.

Police arrested 45-year-old Kim Mattingly after they were called to the home of the former Yankee first baseman to investigate reports of a person refusing to leave on Saturday, a probable cause affidavit said. The affidavit, signed by a Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Deputy Chad Howard, said she smelled of alcohol and screamed at officers.

The couple filed for divorce in November on the grounds of irreconcilable differences. The divorce has not been finalized, and no further action has been taken.

Kim Mattingly was released from the Vanderburgh County Jail after posting $50 bond shortly after her arrest and made her first court appearance Monday on the charges. She is scheduled to appear next on March 3.

Her lawyer, Angela Freel, did not return a telephone call seeking comment.

Kim Mattingly told investigators that Don Mattingly had taken her phone and she wanted it back, the affidavit said. Police spoke to Mattingly, who said he did not have the phone.

Police had told her not to go to the house earlier in the day, Howard said in the affidavit.

On Monday, Don Mattingly filed for a protective order against his wife, which the court granted. In the petition, Mattingly cited three examples of his wife appearing at his home, including an incident on Jan. 22 during which she tried to kick down his door.

Mattingly, who grew up and lives in Evansville, cited family reasons when the Dodgers announced last month that he would serve as special assignment coach for the 2008 season instead of hitting coach.

A former AL MVP during 14 seasons with the Yankees from 1982-95, Mattingly spent the past four seasons as a coach under Joe Torre. After losing out to Joe Girardi for the Yankees' manager job, Mattingly followed Torre to the Dodgers.
The only reason why I post this is to post her photo:



As Schmeg just stated: "Come on Donnie (Baseball)...she's got the crazy eyes."

Lol at the incredible hype surrounding Johan Santana. With all the media coverage he's gotten the past couple months, one could be forgiven for thinking he's the next coming of Jesus.

Many people tout him as being the best pitcher in baseball, and while his stats from the last five years might suggest that he is, I would personally stick to measures of more recent performance. The knock on Peavy is that he has to prove he can consistently pitch like he did last year. However, I still think the title for "current best pitcher in baseball" has to go to one of the following: C.C. Sabathia, Jake Peavy, Josh Beckett, Brandon Webb, or even John Smoltz. Santana might belong in that group, but remember that his stats were in decline by the end of last year, which could or could not be an indicator of how he will perform in general this year.

And remember, moving to the NL does NOT always equal better numbers or greater success. (See: Barry Zito)

you just said john smoltz, at this point in their careers, is better than johan santana, based on a bad month. the only person in that list you gave that you have a real argument for being better than santana is josh beckett.

there is no need to further continue this conversation.

Hey, I think Santana is awesome, but, if you think that Brandon Webb is not even good enough to merit comparison to Santana, Headache, then I think you're underestimating just how good that dude is.

The main reason Santana's ERA spiked last year is because he gave up more home runs, and that will very likely go way down because of the NL.

Nobody knows what the hell is going to happen to Santana next year.

Again, I think he's awesome, and expect that to continue. But, yeah, maybe his ERA will drop because he's in the NL.

But, maybe it will go up because he's pitching in NYC. I need not tell any of you that not every mega-star that comes to NY thrives. Many wilt. Will Johan? I have no idea. Neither do any of you.

he's very good.

but the only reason why i even put beckett in the conversation is because of his post-season dominance.

santana - last 4 years
20-6, 2.61 era, 265 k's, 0.92 WHIP, .192 BAA
16-7, 2.87 era, 238 k's, 0.97 WHIP, .210 BAA
19-6, 2.77 era, 245 k's, 1.00 WHIP, .216 BAA
15-13, 3.33 era, 235 k's, 1.07 WHIP, .225 BAA

webb - last 4 years
7-16, 3.59 era, 164 k's, 1.50 WHIP, .248 BAA
14-12, 3.54 era, 172 k's, 1.26 WHIP, .265 BAA
16-8, 3.10 era, 178 k's, 1.13 WHIP, .246 BAA
18-10, 3.01 era, 194 k's, 1.19 WHIP, .237 BAA

santana's stats came in a significantly more difficult league and division, playing in a hitter's park.
webb's stats came in a much easier league and mostly bad division, playing in a pitcher's dream park.

i know full well how good webb is... he's just not as good as johan santana has been. obviously anything can happen, and johan could very easily not be able to handle the new york media, get injured, or just stop performing for no apparent reason. but i doubt it.

oh... i will give you that johan is older than webb. a whopping 2 months older.
