If Holland’s benefited from some good fortune this season, Twins ace Ervin Santana’s been a damn leprechaun. Just 14.1% of the balls in play hit off Santana this season have fallen in for hits, which would be the lowest mark in baseball history, by a wide margin. A staggering 99.2% of the batters that Santana has put on base this year have failed to score, which would be the highest mark in baseball history, by a wide margin.

A strong reminder to be really, really, really skeptical of early-season numbers ... especially when they’re unprecedented in the history of the game.
