Johan Santana’s Overreacting to Hitting Kevin Youkilis

The Mets and Red Sox met on the first night of interleague play in MLB on Friday with Johan Santana squaring off against Daisuke Matsuzaka.

For the nearly impossible 0-for-5 with five strikeouts, the player receives the rarefied Platinum Sombrero. Well…Read More
