True greatness

In case you don't realize the magnitude of what you're seeing this year, Elias notes that after last night's dominant performance Ervin Santana leads the major leagues in wins (17), strikeouts (219) and EA (2.84) and only trails Roy Halladay by 2/3 of an inning for the lead in innings pitched. The last pitcher to lead the majors in all four of those categories in a single season was Sandy Koufax in 1966 (27 wins, 323 innings, 317 strikeouts and a 1.73 ERA).
