Moment of Levity: Johan Santana's Handshakes
Usually, elaborate celebratory handshakes are reserved for the likes of Mets shortstop Jose Reyes. Well, it turns out that Johan Santana is a bit of a superstitious celebrator himself.
How do we know? Well, there's terrific video reel proof from the minutes after he left his Opening Day start in Cincinnati. Not only did Santana use individual, elaborate celebrations, he had custom made handshakes/slaps for 17 different players and coaches. Seventeen!
A big tip of the cap goes out to the terrific Legend of Cecilio Guante blog for digging up the clip.
