What’s With All the Sentimentality About Trading Players?

What’s With All the Sentimentality About Trading Players?

I really don’t understand it. They are part of the team I am a fan of but they aren’t part of my family. Don’t argue they feel like part of the family because that is just shallow. You probably have never met them or if you have it was a time or two in a quick setting that was not a personal one.

Sure you see them on TV almost nightly but seriously they are just part of a whole, the St. Louis Cardinals. When they get traded we can be happy for their new surroundings that may or may not turn out to be for their benefit. Also, when we get a new player it is not personal like a love or hate relationship. It is all about the team.

So all this sappy stuff about missing a player is just too creepy and weird.

I root for the team and individually to do well as a member but it is TEAM.
