Your Tuesday Morning Roundup

Who would’ve thought we’d still be mentioning Carlos Santana a few months after he was traded?

And better yet, who would’ve thought we’d be mentioning Fortnite?

To catch you up: Carlos Santana swung a bat at a TV during the Phillies’ last series of the season against the Braves because some players were playing the video game during the baseball game.

First off, good for him. That game sucks. I played the game when the craze first began to see how it was. I wasn’t good, I stopped playing, it was a very good decision. It’s a poison for people in their 20s that play sports. Plus, the Wings had a Fortnite Night a couple weeks ago and I bet a good chunk of people went to the game just to play Fortnite.

Anyway, Kapler said he’ll have stricter guidelines for players in the clubhouse during games. This whole incident doesn’t surprise me because who would want to watch 162 games of baseball from start to finish? Plus, the clubhouse is only a short walk away from the dugout.

Meanwhile, Bryce Harper, who got his first two Spring Training hits as a Phillie, dropped a new trailer for MLB: The Show 19, which is a video game. Fitting. We’ve entered the last week of Spring Training by the way.

  1. Well you know it seems like the only thing Santana hit all year was that TV am I right.
