2 Things that strike me.
1)The Milone Trade, is the equivalent of Hiring Best Friend Bob Geren to Manage A’s.
2) Trading Cespedes is the modern day equivalent of the Giants Trading Orlando Cepeda to the Cardinals for Ray Sadecki.
Too much change to Team Chemistry. Cespedes is Important in that Locker Room. Team did not like Milone demotion… Let alone trade. Who are… The We that started in Spring Training, this team has to reshape that identity. Nothing against Lester, Gomes, & Fuld.
I do NOT agree that this is best for this Team.
