I posted an article on Johan Santana over on SB Nation's fantasy page, so head on over and check out my thoughts on his 2011 value on draft day.

Here is an excerpt:

Santana ends the season with an 11-9 record, an ERA of 2.98, WHIP of 1.176, and a K/BB rate of 144-55 in 199 innings pitched. Over the past 5 years, we have seen his K/BB rate drop from 5.29 in 2005 to 2.62 in 2010, a significant drop. His K/9 peaked in 2004 at 10.5 and has steadily dropped to 6.5 this year.
