Summer is the time for movies with lots of explosions.

It's also the time when baseball trade talks start to heat up. No one on the Royals is likely to generate as much trade chatter as starter Ervin Santana, who is 6-6 with a 3.18 ERA and 104 strikeouts in 130 1/3 innings.

On Tuesday, Star columnist Sam Mellinger talked to Santana about being a trade target and Santana later released a video on YouTube. The video is titled simply "Trade Rumors." It shows Santana talking with Salvador Perez and Lorenzo Cain in the Royals clubhouse. It really does have an explosive ending.

Santana tweeted a link to the video today. Here it is:

Funny stuff.
