Meche (8-6, 4.97)           Santana (3-3, 5.50)

It's been a funny season for the 22 year old righty prospect - in his seven starts, Santana has allowed 6, 0, 1, 7, 1, 7, and 1 runs. There's no middle ground here - he's either amazing or friggin' terrible. He's a bit of a flyball pitcher who can be betrayed from time to time by spotty command and hits that go a long way, but he's still a damn good young talent, so be wary of another six-consecutive-strikeouts streak. As for Gil, he's been terrible for four straight starts and five of his last six. He needs to stop that. We can't afford to give up too many runs when we're gunning for a four-game sweep on Anaheim's turf.
