Listen to Tom Hamilton call Carlos Santana’s “prodigious grand slam!”

Bode Plots: What is wrong with Carlos Santana?

Carlos Santana has been having an interesting season at the plate. In his most recent stretch of games, he only has three hits in the last 26 plate appearances (3-for-21 with four walks), but he has made each of those hits count. Santana had two home runs over the weekend against the New York Yankees, and, on Monday, he hit a ninth inning single off of left-hander Jon Lester to...

Fantasy Roundup: Santana’s Subpar Season

Yoenis Cespedes Yoenis Cespedes, and for that matter much of the Mets team, had a monstrous weekend in Colorado. Much of Cespedes’ damage was done Friday night when he recorded five hits, scored five runs, hit three home runs, and drove in seven runs.

On sluggers, arbitrary milestones, and Carlos Santana

When the Cleveland Indians were at their peak from 1995-2001, they had the biggest, baddest offense in the league. It was a glorious time to love the sport of baseball in Northeast Ohio. During that seven-year stretch — the height of MLB’s steroid era — the Tribe ranked top-two in baseball in total runs, doubles, home runs, batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging...

Should The Indians Trade Carlos Santana?

Make no bones about it, Carlos Santana‘s season has been the most disappointing of any Indians player this season. While much improved over the last few games, Santana’ batting line is a disappointing .221/.352/.381 with 10 home runs through 82 games played. If the season ended today, his 112 wRC+ rating would by far be the lowest of his career. Much of Santana’s struggles...

Santana Showing Signs of Heating Up

Maybe, just maybe, the bat of Cleveland Indians man-without-a-position Carlos Santana is finally heating up. It is tough to guess the exact culprit for the struggles of the once-reliable slugger at the plate this season, but since his return from the seven-day concussion disabled list at the beginning of June, his bat has been a bit livelier. Given his numbers over the first two...
