MANILA, Philippines – The San Miguel Beer management is glad it stuck with its decision not to trade Arwind Santos, whose leadership shone bright when the Beermen went on to win their first all-Filipino title in 14 PBA seasons.
Over a year ago, San Miguel fans were clamoring for Santos’ head after the team, then known as the Petron Blaze Boosters, lost to Rain or Shine, 4-2, in last season’s Philippine Cup.
But the Beermen made it clear that they weren’t going to give away Santos as the former FEU Tamaraw, together with former University of Cebu standout June Mar Fajardo, compose the core of San Miguel.
Their 2015 Philippine Cup title win against a never-say-die Alaska squad proved that....
MANILA, Philippines – Both Arwind Santos and June Mar Fajardo are hoping that San Miguel Beer’s Philippine Cup title win will bring back the Beermen’s glory days when they won the PBA Grand Slam in the late 1980s.
Santos, the Philippine Cup Finals MVP, said they look forward to achieving the same feat recently accomplished by their fellow San Miguel Corp. team, Purefoods Star.

MANILA – San Miguel Beer's star forward Arwind Santos bared that he’s willing to lend his talent to the new batch of Gilas Pilipinas.
Santos, who led the Beermen to their first PBA Philippine Cup title in 14 years, said it would be a privilege to play for the national team.
“Willing na willing akong lumaro [for the national team],” said the “Spiderman” during San Miguel’s tribute party for the newly crowned PBA champions....
At the victory party held in the San Miguel Head Office Complex in Ortigas, SMC President and CEO Ramon S. Ang congratulated the Beermen for nabbing its 20th title, which is the most in PBA history.
