As Spring training begins we all just sit back and enjoy the games, and LOVE that they don't count. But as every season rolls around they're always trading the best players off of your favorite teams. Why do they do this? Well let me tell you why, they do it because of money, or maybe he just isn't hitting as good as he was when they signed him? Well that is bullcrap because everyone goes into a slump. It's ridiculous actually. From the Yankees for sure I know they traded Matsui, why? He was a major profit to why the Yankees did so well in the World Series. Now he went to the Angels, and believe me I'm not complaining because I love the Angels. But what are these teams really thinking in their heads? Lets trade one of our best players, so we can get "BETTER", now that is a smart thing to do! I have heard rumors that Johnny Damon got traded too, now that is just awful. The Yankees are a great team, but I am just not a fan, but still. This is ridiculous. Baseball is a growing community and is always a delight of Summertime. The snow cones, the hot dogs, the souveniers. But most of all the memories that it enfolds. As a child, as a spouse, or just as a friend it brings you much enjoyment. It's wrong to trade people off of the teams to just get more money. It's soooo wrong, and this kind of behavior must stop or the fans will just stop believing in their favorite teams. I am fed up with this it is an outrage!!!!
