Santana ‘blows up’ over trade rumors

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Will Royals right-hander Ervin Santana be traded? Will he stay with the Royals and sign a long-term deal?
 
Who knows?
 
I chatted with Santana on Tuesday about all the possibilities, and he was his usual easygoing, laid-back self.
 
And later, Santana posted a pretty funny video on his Twitter account with the heading “Trade Rumors,” a video that probably sums up his feelings about the silliness of paying too much attention to all the rumors.

Spoiler alert: Maybe Santana is suggesting things could, ahem, blow up at any time.
