Jekyll/Hyde i.e. Ervin Santana

Post by masterpinky0509 »

So he's 5 IP, 1 ER right now at home. His last two strikeouts were pretty sick (Ichiro on 3 pitches: 2 straight curves and then a fastball low and inside) and he's definitely dealing right now. The only run came on a pitch to Adrian Beltre that was low but over the middle, still not a bad pitch b/c guys will often get on top of it.

But what is the deal w/ his home/road split? This guy has great stuff and fairly good control w/ all his pitches, why does he get shelled every time on the road?

Maybe he feels comfortable at home?

Either way, he is $$$$$$$$$$$$$ at home. Ridiculously insanely good at home. If you just played him at home versus anybody, he probably must have sick ratios.

Here are the cold hard facts....

Career splits before today:
Home: 32GS, 211IP, 20-5, 3.07ERA, 1.18WHIP
Away: 27GS, 142IP, 9-13, 6.78ERA, 1.58WHIP

Pretty brutal. I think the most glaring part is that his average outing at home is just under 6 2/3 innings and his average outing away is under 5 1/3 innings.

We understand what the splits are, but is the answer to why, merely he feels more comfortable at home? Seems simple enough but what a major blow to him being a true star.

I heard Scoscia had an interesting idea: having Santana warm up through the top of the 1st inning, so he enters the bottom of the 1st freshly warmed up (so it's exactly like home, where he goes straight from warm-up to pitching).

The solution can't be that simple, can it?

Angel Stadium is considered a hitters park isn't it? If so, it's got to be something mental than and maybe Scoscia's idea might just work.

Anything to make him worth more than 15 starts.
