Johan’s Wife to Have Baby

Johan Santana will NOT be at Citi Field today, instead staying back in Florida to be with his wife, who will be giving birth in Fort Myers.

The couple is expecting a son, who will be named Johan Alexander Santana, Jr.

The ultrasound did not reveal whether the newborn will be a lefthander.

    Read today that Harry Kalas died. A sad day for the sport and for the Phillies franchise. At least he kept at it long enough to see the team win a world series.
