Johan Santana Is Johan Santana Again

Johan Santana has not been his usual dominant self most of this season — most worrying, his walk rates are up and his strikeout rates are way, way down — and he wasn't Old School Johan last night, either. Fortunately, he's still pretty great, and he shut out the white-hot Reds 3–0 and even added a homer for his troubles. The Mets' playoff odds are up to 43 percent, and that's if they don't trade for Cliff Lee. It's Jon Niese tonight, against this guy.
