Santana is proof of how unimportant batting average can be. His .393 secondary average is astounding and why he ends up finishing fourth. Ironically, this is where we would expect him to finish among third basemen, but we would expect some better numbers along the way. That has always been the way with Santana. Every year more is expected and yet it is not delivered. As they say, it is time to appreciate what you have instead of what you think he should be.
