While every blogger is analyzing the stats of Ervin Santana in the minor leagues to pretend they are analytical as they look into their Miss Clio cystal balls, the good Reverend here will just bust out the mojo - this guy has got more nickname potential than any other Angel minor leaguer, so he has got to do good.
While every blogger is analyzing the stats of Ervin Santana in the minor leagues thinking they are so much smarter than the average fan, the good Reverend has been looking up the lyrics of hits by Santana - Do you realize Oye Como Va has 9 words in the whole song?

Uh, I mean, this team's VORP projects in the 80th percentile without the addition of top-rated prospects who would already be AAAA contributors on 23 other major league clubs.
