Johan Santana Speaks, But Doesn’t Say Much
After a well deserved rest back home in his native Venezuela, Johan Santana is back in the good ole’ United States as he prepares for another Cy Young type season.
Of course he has heard all the rumors and all the trade talk while he was away, but he offered very little in the way of shedding any light on the situation.
Associated Press quoted him as saying the following…
"I’m a Minnesota Twin. That’s all I know. It’s up to them. Whatever they have to do is going to happen. It has nothing to do with me at all,” Santana told the News-Press. “I said it from the beginning during the season last year, whatever will be the best for this team and this organization, I’ll agree with that."
Andrew Vazzano from The ‘Ropolitans said something in his blog that really illustrates just why Johan Santana is not just a huge star, but also a very likable player. He wrote…
An easy going guy, I see. It’s about time a superstar like this doesn’t have an ego about him. He isn’t making trade demands and choosing teams to make it harder on the Twins. Sure, he’ll demand money, but being the best pitcher in the league allows you some leeway in the contractual process (see A-Rod).
You look at all the big money players like A-Rod, Manny Ramirez, Randy Johnson, etc. and you can easily see what Andrew is talking about. Now I want Johan even more than I did already, and that was a lot…
