Santana becomes US citizen before Braves, Indians postponed

CLEVELAND (AP) — Not even a cold, rainy day could hinder Carlos Santana’s joyful smile.

The Indians first baseman was sworn in as a U.S. citizen on Friday, taking the oath with 83 others while his two young daughters fought for his attention. Afterward, Santana beamed with pride.

“Thanks, Cleveland, for giving me an opportunity,” said Santana, who was born in the Dominican Republic. “This is my residence, my city, and I’m proud and happy for that. Thank God I’m an American.”

Remember, ladies and gentlemen, correlation does not mean causation….

Carlos Santana, J.P. Crawford say goodbye to Philadelphia in classy fashion

On paper, general manager Matt Klentak and the Phillies did very well by trading Carlos Santana and J.P. Crawford for All-Star shortstop Jean Segura and two relief pitchers.

Neither the 23-year-old Crawford nor Santana, signed to a three-year, $60 million deal last December, performed to expectations in their time as Phillies.

Give both guys credit, though, for going out the right way.
