"Finally! Baseball has come back...to Citi Field!"
Forgive the WWE reference, but I'm still excited after The Rock's epic comeback on Sunday night during WrestleMania XXVIII.
Thursday marks a similar comeback of another fan-favorite as Johan Santana returns to the mound to face the Atlanta Braves on Opening Day.

So what can we expect from Santana in his first start since September 2, 2010? There's really no way of knowing, but let's have some fun and make a few predictions.
