CLEVELAND– Earlier on Friday, reports broke that Carlos Santana is expected to sign with the Philadelphia Phillies after eight seasons with the Cleveland Indians.
Santana was a staple of the organization, and a piece that a large majority of the fans were hoping would stay in a Tribe uniform through free agency.
While fans couldn’t get what they wanted, there is still plenty of appreciation for all the ‘Los did in Cleveland.
Check out the Twitter reaction to the news below:

I love Carlos Santana. What makes me most said, is that I think most people are okay with Santana leaving. I don't get that. Don't be most people. Be Sad. This is sad. #Indians. I heart @TheRealSlamtana
