Santana, who chose the Phillies in free agency after spending the first eight seasons of his career with the Cleveland Indians, was especially complimentary of the fans in an Instagram post, saying that "your passion for Philadelphia sports energized me and motivated me to do my best."
He even said "hopefully I'll play against you Phillies fans in the World Series!" That seems rather far-fetched given the Mariners' rebuilding approach, but you never know.
With his suit for Thursday night's game, Jake Elliott proved kickers can look just as good as the quarterback.
He picked the perfect time to whip this one out. The Giants know Elliott well. He booted the kick Eagles fans will never forget, the 61-yarder to beat the Giants, 27-24, in Week 3 last season. The Eagles were 1-1 at the time and went on to win nine straight.
The images of the celebration were unforgettable. Elliott certainly won't forget them because look at the inside of his suit jacket, via Eliot Shorr-Parks of 94WIP.com.

The Flyers are paying tribute to the late rapper Mac Miller in a pretty cool way.
The team is bringing back Miller's "Knock Knock" as its victory song for this season. The Flyers got their first opportunity to play it after an impressive 5-2 win in Las Vegas over the Golden Knights in their season opener Thursday.
During the 2011-12 season, the Flyers were huge fans of the song. HBO's cameras captured the team having a blast celebrating in the locker room to the tune of "Knock Knock" on its mini-series 24/7: Flyers-Rangers — Road to the NHL Winter Classic.
Miller, a Pittsburgh native, died on Sept. 7 at 26 years old.
Hopefully the Flyers will have plenty more chances this season to remember him and his music.
