Yes, I’m talking to you, Brian.
I just read an article on Yahoo Sports, and the mention of Melky’s name in connection with a possible trade with the Braves for Derek Lowe bummed me out. I mean, seriously, Cash. You’ve already said goodbye to Matsui…
…and you refused to give Damon the raise he was looking for…
…so don’t even think about shipping Melky out too.
These are the players who helped us win #27. I realize that every team needs to re-tool, even reigning World Champions. Change is good. Getting younger and more athletic is fine. New blood is exciting. But what’s also good and fine and exciting are team chemistry, a history of winning and the fact that it’s dumb to mess with success. I can live without Matsui. I can live without Damon (although not as easily). I can even live without Melky (if the other two weren’t already gone). What I cannot live with is the loss of all three. So please. Leave the team somewhat intact and don’t make a grown woman cry.
That’s all I have to say. It’s Saturday night and I’m going to watch a movie with my husband now. Can I trust that when the movie is over, nobody else will be traded and/or not signed? Thank you.
