Carlos Santana has resumed baseball activities

Paul Hoynes says that Sandy Alomar says that  Carlos Santana feels “great” and is currently doing baseball activities.  Given the nature of that grapevine, it’s safe to assume that Paul also says that Sandy says that Carlos likes Heather, but that he doesn’t like-like her, but that could all change at the Snowball Dance next month.

Anyway, this is good news for the Tribe. That injury to Santana’s knee looked positively horrific at the time.  Before the injury he hit .260/.401/.467 with six home runs, 22 RBI and an 868 OPS over his first 192 major league plate appearances. I watched him a bunch here in Columbus last year and the guy was an absolute beast.  If he’s healthy, he will be one of the few truly bright spots for the Indians in 2011.

    My best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with the girl who saw him pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it’s pretty serious.

      Bueller…Bueller…Bueller… Oh, he’s sick.

    Yeah, but is he in the best shape of his life? That will tell the tale.

    Good news for the Indians?! A rare sighting indeed…

    Any truth to the rumor that he got better with the help of a black magic woman? And would that be considered a PED?

      Depends what she looks like.

        Not a magic black woman…though it could be.

    Heard this: Neal Schon was once Carlos Santana’s backup guitarist. Now Schon is Carlos Santana’s guru who always tells him to never stop believing, and to hold on to his fee-ee-ee-ee-eeelings.

    Sorry, Carlos. Clapton is God.

      He’s gotta at least be an Archangel.

        Or an apostle. In the Jeff Beck, Robert Fripp, SRV realm. Definitely in the inner circle.
        (And yes, those of you over 50, I know I’m leaving out folks like John Lee Hooker and company. Calm down, there in there too. As is George Benson, a very underrated musician).

    Clapton? Give me Jimi… or Jimmy… or maybe even someone born in the last 50 years, like Jack.
