ARWIND Santos’ long-running San Miguel stint has come to an end.
In shock trade news announced early this afternoon, November 8, the Beermen will swap the Spiderman for the Muscleman, as Vic Manuel figures in a second big-ticket trade in the span of a weekend.
Earlier, Spin.ph’s Snow Badua had reported that an “SMC team” was in the works all along for the 34-year-old Manuel, who had made the move to NorthPort just days before. But many fans and observers did not expect that it would involve the 15-year veteran, who had been playing with SMB for more than a decade.
On Twitter, many fans expressed their surprise, dismay, and profuse thanks to Arwind Santos.
