Angels Ervin Santana Says “F*ck It, Lets Pitch” On Live TV
Total Pro Sports – When a reporter puts his mic to the mouth of a professional athlete, there is no telling what will be said next. Often we are faced with the same boring questions, which produce the same boring answers, but following a game against the Detroit Tigers last week, Anaheim Angels pitcher Ervin Santana had some interesting words for viewers.
Santana was seen sporting a bloody nose throughout the game. It had little effect on his performance, pitching 8 2/3 innings, allowing only one run on six hits while striking out seven. When asked about the nose on a live television interview following the game, he had this to say:
“When I was throwing in the bullpen, warming up, it started bleeding. I just put this in my nose and I just said f*ck it, lets pitch.”
Strong words from a strong armed man. And “f*ck it, lets pitch” is exactly what he did. His reaction once he realizes what he said is great. A little smirk, then a laugh. Looks like Santana has been listening to one too many sounds bites from Sportsnet broadcaster Roger Millions. Or maybe it was the recent outburst by Blue Jays Alex Rios on a fan that was stuck in his head. Whatever it was, you can bet he will think a little harder about what he says next time he is put in front of the camera.
