null Baseball null Phillies right-hander Jake Arrieta still has a problem with former teammate and current Indians first baseman Carlos Santana, and he aired his disdain for Santana this week in an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer.Arrieta said the culture in Philadelphia "was better this year" compared to 2018, when Santana played 161 games for the Phillies and reportedly smashed a clubhouse TV when he saw teammates playing "Fortnite" during a game. Santana did not let Arrieta's antagonism slide. In a Twitter post Thursday night, Santana defended himself while also implying he had run-ins with Arrieta over how Arrieta conducted himself.MORE: Tommy Edman's arrival crucial to Cards "If Jake isn't doing the best thing for the team or setting a bad example for the young guys," Santana wrote, "I'm not going to sit back and support it. Maybe he didn't agree with that."Santana found a quality ending to cap his post: "Turn the page Papi."🧐🧐🧐 night thoughts...— Carlos Santana ⚾️ (@TheRealSlamtana) October 4, 2019Arrieta, 33, has made a habit of criticizing others during his two-year stint with Philadelphia, even as his own play has declined. He has a 4.26 ERA and has allowed 42 home runs, yet he has found time to call out Bryce Harper, threaten Todd Frazier and bash, well, his entire team.It's impossible to know the specifics of what went on between Arrieta and Santana, but calling out a former teammate more than a year after playing with them seems unnecessary and supports previous criticism

of Arrieta for his temperament.He should probably, as Santana put it, turn the page.
