While my Guitar gently walks

The Indians will be playing in an elimination game tomorrow and noted baseball columnist Mike Petriello has pegged Carlos Santana as a likely hero for the Indians.

I’ve been writing about Carlos Santana since he first appeared as a Dodger prospect in the rookie leagues and he has never failed to disappoint.  He has had a very unique career as this table shows.

Only three players since 2011 have had at least 500 walks and 150 home runs.

Carlos  Santana is one of them.
